NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Courtesy of a fine Mystery beer Swap participant...I think twas jjpm74. Lovely concentrated fruit malt aroma has some mild citrusy tingle in the nose and features fruitcake, baked pineapple sweetbread, bannana nut bread and some toned down caramel accents. Very lovely aroma highligted by the wonderfully malt complimentary pineapple notes. The body of the beer is a ruddy, dusky brown and holds creamy tan head that is about the thickness of a standard Bic pen. The fore is a rich and sweet (low-spice) fruitcake. Baked Pineapple accents here as well. More caramel flavor than aroma...rich sweet and malty with caramel through the middle. The finish is strongly sweet, but well balanced with a firm bitterness. this is one of those beers I always new I’d try, but never got around to and now feel silly for having waited so long. Very nice.

This dark brown ale poured with a lacy tan head, eliciting a strong malty aroma. This is a full-bodied beer with a delicious caramel malt flavor expertly blended with a plethora of hop tastes. It starts out slightly sweet, then a piney taste, followed by a long pleasant hoppy bitterness. This beer is very well-crafted and is a pleasure to drink.

Bronzed brown. Slim but sustaining creamy beige cap. Sheeting lace coats the glass with a wondeful filming of tiny patterned bubbles. Aroma is of a slight toasted nuttyness, slight caramel bread rolls, and a splash of vanilla. Not all the impressive on the nose really, but... Whoa, holy crap! This is one tasty treat. Bold, rich, and invigoratingly thick. Soft, yielding front of caramel malts. Breadyness and dull molasses, plummy tang insues from there, building, and building, and oh my what a great finish. Warm sherry notes blend into the backgound of a solid base of caramel. Barleywine-esk in character along the finish. Warm, thick, chewy, and lengthy. Hops add some depth with a leafy semi bittering pineyness surrounded by the caramel warmth. Quite nice. Feel is based in malty richness. Smoothly rounded and warming with one firm thick/medium body thats forever giving into the finish with a wonderful warmth of caramel chewy stuff. A very nice surprise. I was hoping for an equal exchange of goodness for the $5.29 per 11.2 oz bottle price tag. And got it. A special beer for a special price. And worth getting.

Lemme see here.... chocolate colour, almost no head, but that’s most beers when I pour it. It smells of malt it tastes of malt. it tastes of malt again, then even after you drink it it tastes of malt for 15 more minutes. Personally I’d say this is a good thing.

KAME (160) - California, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Pours a deep brown with small off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and full of caramel. Hints of persimmon and dark fruit are also apparent. Flavor is sweet, bitter, and fruity (strawberries?) with a nice warming alcohol aftertaste. Mouthfeel is quite sticky, and heavy. Overall, not too bad, but I probably won’t buy it again.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malt and tart fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet fruity flavor with a medium sweetbitter finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

Nice hayloft sweet molasses. semitranslucent cherry brown. Very sweet, big fat malt mix, raisins and dark fruit. a little hoppy syrup finish. interesting, unique, funk from an old vat, full of flavor, loaded, warming.

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours brown with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, alcohol, and roast. The flavor is bitter, caramel, citrus. Great beer.

Thanks to Immy. From swing top bottle, pours a dark copper with tan head. Nose is like sticking your head into a bag of grain, very nice, but unrefined. Flavor is more of the same with a little sweetness. Palate is smooth.

11.2 oz swing top. Coppery pour. This one is all about the malt - the nose and flavor is sweet, sticky malt syrup. Caramel, some light fruit and grassy hops all take a back seat. I like!
