Bottle from craftbeerdesign. Thanks again guy. Great trader are you. Pours very dark brown with a slight off-white head. Aroma is malt and a bit of heat. Full bodied with mild creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit cola, mayhap more than a bit, with hints of roast malt and smoke. Nice ale indeed.

22 ounce bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham, NC. Pours a clear red color with a medium head. Fair head retention and lacing. Nice caramel malt aroma with a fairly strong earthy hoppiness. Faintly smoky. Taste is caramel, raisin, and faint leafy hops. Medium-full bodied. A worthy beer to commemorate my birthday today.

Sammy (11247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Rich malty aroma, nice white head, a littl smoke in the finish. Slightly better than average mouthfeel. On sweet side, but not cloying.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2009
Bottle. Pours a brown color wtih a light head. Aroma is very malt forward. Tons of caramel, salty peat and maybe a hint of light chocolate. Flavor is pretty full...caramel, nuts, roast and overall is really an easy drinking beer.
