queenholly (3089) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Vinous malt, earthy herbal, and alcohol aroma. Viscous hazy amber with a minimal ivory head. Sticky sweet caramel malt, earthy, fruity, sweet orange hops, and big boozy flavor. Full sticky body. The whole thing is just a little too cloyingly sweet for my taste.

Cybercat (3770) - Georgia, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Pours an appetizing clear chestnut with a thin but appreciable light tan head. Strong aroma has notes of caramel and wheat with a fruity underpinning. Strong, bold flavor rolls fruity, caramel, and wheat notes across the palate, along with a noticeable alcohol bite. Drink it slowly, and on a full stomach! Firm, syrupy texture has some good fizz and sass. Go straight to your nearest package store or watering hole that has this available.

burg326 (4298) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Poured a caramel amber color with aromas of light yeast, cherries, malt, dark fruit, booze and some light earth. Flavors follow suit with some bozziness and spicy yeast on the back end. Solid overall.
