Can. Deep amber body. Beige head. Aroma of overripe dark fruit, alcohol, plum, raisin, caramel, biscuit. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Taste of raisin, plum, brown sugar, hot alcohol. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. less sweetness would help, but good flavors and aromas.

Poured from 16oz can. Pours cola brown with thin beige head that disappears quickly. Aroma is lots of maple syrup, raisins and dried fruits. The taste follows with a great sweetness and some fruity esters. I had this at GABF and there was a distinct apple cider flavor that I don’t get with the slightly aged can.

hopscotch (9558) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Can... Clear copper ale with a flimsy, fleeting, white head. The nose is a melange of caramel, white wine and mild oak. Medium to full-bodied and a touch oily with laid-back carbonation. The fllavor offers lovely caramel and toffee, accompanied by light tartness. Good balance for the style, but it does lean a touch sweet, as it should. Finishes rich, caramely and nourishing. Quite the meal. Can courtesy of StFun. Thanks, Josh!

Can. Pours a nice ruby color. The aroma is nice and warming. The taste sweet and warm. Surprising for a can. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz can. Had this at GABF 2012 as well and really enjoyed it. Maple pour with a fairly thin head. Nose of dark fruit, raisins, and bready malt. Taste is very malt forward with a ton a dark fruit sweetness. A touch of an acetone flavor. Really tasty and sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - APR 16, 2013
Tap sample. Dark mahogany/purple color with burgundy hues and no head. Aroma of cherries soaked in liquor, port wine, wood and vanilla extract. Super sweet, with dates, cake and beet sugar, low bitterness. Full body, cloying, heavy, complex, hard to drink but a good digestif.

Jethro6191 (465) - Indiana, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a deep brown with a thin ivory head. Cherry, dark fruit, bread, and Bourbon flavors. Nice creamy mouthfeel with a warming alcohol bite at the finish. Very nice and enjoyable.
