Poured a cloudy brown color with a thin tan head which quickly faded away, there was some mild lacing. Aroma was mainly malty some roasted some sweet. I really can no describe the as caramel like , but it was sweet. Flavor was rich with roasted malt note with a nice spice at the end. Full bodied.

The color was murky medium/dark orange/brown. The head was medium bodied, creamy, frothy, and light biege. The aroma was pleasant with scents of root beer, spices, and sweet malt. The flavor was alcohol, spicey, waxy at the back of the mouth, hops, sweet malt, and basement must. The palate was nicely carbonated. The finish was waxy and warm.

Pours a murky reddish brown with a nice creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet, caramel, raisins, bubblegum, alcohol, very very nice. Warm alcohol, flavor is much more toned down than nose, earthy rich malty, caramel, slight hop wax at the back of the mouth. Full smooth palate with a noticeable carbonation and pleasant warmth. Delicious. If only the flavor had lived up to the aroma.

The 11.2 ounce bottle poured a clear deep mahogany (reddish brown) colored beverage with a modest creamy off-white head that was mostly diminishing but left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was strong and fruity with notes of plum, raisins, caramel and just a hint of aged leather. The body was medium-full with soft carbonation and a smooth creamy texture. The flavor started out moderately bitter with just a hint sweetness at the edge. The finish was long with a bit of alcohol warmth in the chest and the bitterness mellowed nicely.

Poured a dark amber-chestnut body with a creamy off-white dome and great lacing. Sweet, caramel, chocolate, fruity nose. Very complex. Bold, well-balanced and extraordinarily awesome!

I just spent quite a while typing up a very detailed review but then my browser messed up and erased it. I don’t feel like typing it all out again. The most unique thing about this beer I thought was that the aroma smelled most like some kind of woman’s hand soap - very flowery and fruity but in a way that reminded me of soap. Odd, but pleasant.

I think this was bottled in 2004? pours a dark ruby brown, fairly clear with an off-white head. Aroma is a pretty complex mix of raspberries, raisins and plums with some caramel, french bread and white chocolate notes. There’s a slight leather note poking through, which actually works well and adds to the aroma. Taste isn’t quite as good to me, but it still has a lot going on. Caramel and raisin flavors abound with some bitter citrus, almost grapefruit flavor thrown in. Finishes becomes a bit dry and woody, with a slightly burnt aftertaste. These hops have definitely held up well and pretty much dominate the flavor and finish. The beer’s just shy of thick, but it lacks creaminess. Just a bit too slick and oddly still too carbonated. Great aroma, but the taste isn’t quite as nice.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 Dark brown poured a thin white head you can tase the alcohol on this one almost like a malt wisky (might grab another one and let it age )

Large tan head, medium amber hue. Aroma is predominantly sweet caramel and raisins with just a hint of dough. Flavor is initially bitter then more sweet. Medium mouthfeel and a bit of warming in the finish.
