Growler at LS X. Brown with a light tan head. Caramelly brown sugar aroma. Tastes roasty and caramelly, with more brown sugar, and a bit of an and spicy herbal finish to it.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Growler, with a huge thanks to bvc! Pours a murky brown with orange highlights and a moderate yet lasting creamy tan head. Aroma is more hoppy than expected, with lots of grass, hay, earth, citrus and a little caramel. Flavor is more grassy and earthy hops, a little caramel sweetness. Not super complex or anything, but dangerously drinkable. Thanks again Brandon!

bvc (1160) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Draft at Naked City. Golden toffee with egg shell colored creamy head with sticky lacing. Lightly sweet peach, bready malt and some light resinous hops. Hoppy up front then rolls into fleshy pitted fruit with nice malted backbone. Good winter seasonal.

BillKismet (3356) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Gorgeous orange-amber maroonish body with a layer of tan cream on top. Easy hoppiness relents into malt and a wave of fruitiness. Moderate apricot and dried fruit that feel vaguely of a barleywine, yet are much restrained. The alcohol content is exceedingly well harnessed and never distracts. The body is layered with malt and fruitiness, most prominently peach and apricot. Some crystal candi sugar notes. A flavorful, well-rounded winter warmer.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Orange red with a thick cream head. Has a very very faint IPA smell. Earthy and spicy with some sugar. One of the smoothest beers I’ve ever had. Citrus and grass in the taste and the bitter finish lingers.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 15, 2009
Tap at Horse Brass. Poured a dark reddish brown with a thick tan topper. Aroma of plums and other dark fruit, a bit of a port smell and some nutmeg. Flavor was dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar and a little beat of yeast. Very flavorful and tasty, I wish TG would bottle more of their beers.

Blind taste at concordia. lightly sugary aroma with a mild bitter finish. Very good balance.

neepsntatties (1233) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2009
On tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... dark amber with a thick head. Nose... sweetly malty, some mash character and booze as well. Palate... good CO2 punch to start, lots o’ hops up front, malty, biscuity, and plenty of toffee on the back palate. Doesn’t seem like 9% ABV. This could really sneak up on a person!

Another really good beer, unfortunately this was my last of OBF. Wow that ABV takes you for a ride. Very strong malt body and a bitter quality throughout.
