fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Draught at Mckayís Taphouse, Bellingham
Dark amber color, with creamy head. Never had a dark cider like this before; it has a moderate aroma of red apples, and very light hazelnuts; sweetish flavor, with nice flavor of red apple juice.
More fruit juice than cider.

Contains added brown sugar and molasses. Cloying sweet. Disgusting and undrinkable.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Dark wood-amber with a decent head for a cider. Apple nose that veers towards jolly rangerland. Sweet and candy-apple flavor. Jolly-ranger finish. Not bad, but rather artificial tasting.

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
Clear amber/brown with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates to a small ring. Aroma of ripe apples, chardonnay wine and light caramel. Flavor of sweet baked apples and then finishes a bit dry and tart. Medium to light body with light carbonation and a dry finish. This is nice, not overly sweet and quite drinkable.

Wonderful. SMOOTH as butter on the palate. Carbonation is light and aids in the smoothness. Pours a wonderfully clear brown with a thin head. Very drinkable, and surprisingly sweet given its advertisement as a dry cider. There are much drier ciders out there, for sure. Like nothing Iíve had before.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle from total wine Chantilly. Pours brown with a note of molasses to go along with the apple. I canít say this is the most aesthetically pleasing liquid Iíve ever consumed. A bit dry on the tongue with a slight brown sugar note. Eh!

maxwelldeux (3450) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Iím not normally a cider drinker but I really like this one. Itís much darker than I would have anticipated, and pours with no head. Itís dry for a cider, so it doesnít have that sickeningly sweet taste that some ciders do. Great find...

magsinva (860) - Virginia, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle from TWM McLean - pours clear dark red little to no carbonation. Aroma is brown sugar and tart apples. Taste is sweet and tart. Overall, very nice. †

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle from Blue Dog. Pours burnt sienna with fizzy khaki head. This is by far the darkest brown cider I have ever poured. Nose is sweet apples and cinnamon, earthy brown sugar, honey. Very complex nose. Tastes of apple, earthy brown sugar, molasses, with a complex, rather hefty palate and a delicious finish. This one is outstanding.
