Strong sweet malt flavor throughout. Pleasant west coast hops and a nice bitter finish tie it all together. Really nice but rather immemorable.

Lagerboy (1182) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
Clear dark amber with a fading tan head. Aroma of caramel and dark roasty malts, which are nicely balanced with a generous amount of hops. Medium bodied, also some fruit and nuttiness. Slow bitter finish. Nice stong ale. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Draught. My Border ancestors drank ale like this. Deep amber red with lasting off white head. Sweet malty aroma. Very full. Full bodied. Malt with some peatiness. Lasting malt finish, with enough hop to keep it honest. Excuse me, friends, I must now go and steal horses.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 8, 2011
This 22 oz. bottle poured a dark amber with a robust tan head and good lacing rings. Nose was crawling with malty aromas including rye. Medium body and smooth and chewy mouthfeel. Flavor is very malty, with all sorts of flavors including nuts. The finish was lightly bitter and with some subtle fruit that was delightful. This was kind of like an English Bitter but smoother and easier to drink than most. Excellent. This small brewery is making good beer.

Strykzone (4811) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 7, 2011
22 oz. bottle sent by Hayduke. Enjoyed during a facebook chat. This beeer poured a mahogany brown and was mostly clear. A tan that was one finger at best but that had strong retention. A very unique nose was sweetness and rye. The flavor began with huge rye and grain. That grain was complex and made me wish I was more familiar with varieties of it. Chocolate and rye were tasted but other nuances were missed. Late, some hops began to emerge. They were mildly bitter and offered soft fruit. This was such a fun beer to sample and rate. Beginning with a unique blast it later allowed nuances to be tasted. Thanks, Ron!

10 ounce sample from the Horse Brass Pub in Portland, OR. It’s amazing that it took this beer 6 years to acquire 10 ratings. Aroma is rather mild with light caramel and light fruity hints. Mildly metallic, too. Transparent amber body with an off-yellow head that leaves decent lacing. Starts a little fruity and sweet, before it becomes chewy, caramelly, and toasted with maltiness in the middle. Finishes with decent roastiness and some metallic hops. Pretty tasty.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Draught @ Porters in Medford:   Garnet in color, off-white head, fairly large, sticky lacing.   Looks decent enough.   Nutty nose, malty, certainly biscuity.   Marris Otter malts on the tongue?   At least that is what I think it is, very biscuity.   Malty, but not heavy.   Lighter example of the style, but decent enough.   Body and mouthfeel border between moderate and full.   Slightly fruity on the exit.   Decent beer, not so heavy with the biscuit aspect, which I dislike if too heavy.   Fairly well balanced, obviously the hop side of this is miniscule.   Simple and enjoyable.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... amber with a thin head. Nose... crushed tea leaf and hibiscus. Palate... white sugar, bitter tea, some malt and, believe it or not, Smarties!

Probably THE BEST strong ale I’ve ever had, and I’ve had many. If your a fan of Strong Ales this is a must! Full bodied with a very light fruity taste and a kick.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2006
A very fruity and yet nicely malty strong ale. Not quite well balanced, but yet very drinkable and quite tasty. A nice hop bitterness kicks in on the finish, great lingering flavors on the palate.
