Sampled at NH Brew Fest. 4 oz. sample. Pours a hazy dark brown with a 1/4" white head. Aroma includes rum, molasses & dark fruits. Flavor is sweet with the molasses and dark fruits being predominant, but there is a bitterness from some earthy hops. Medium bodied. Nice, I’d buy a bottle if one came my way.

Bottle shared by rschnake...thanks Rob! - Pours rosy amber with a thin white head. Nose is sweet booze--whiskey and light bread. Taste is sweet caramel, light warm booze, raisins, and smooth malty sweetness. Thinnish with light carbonation. Better than I thought it’d be.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Bottle shared by Rob at local tasting, pours a light hazy brown, poured a lot lighter than I was expecting, the aroma was really sweet with a lot of sweet malt and caramel with a little bit of the rum coming through, the flavor has more of the rum on the front end with some molasses and caramel sweetness in the finish, not bad.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 23, 2013
22oz bottle. Clear amber/brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of sugary malt, dark fruit, toffee, alcohol and some leather. Flavor is sweet and sugary with warming alcohol, toffee and fruity yeast esters. Medium to light body with a thin mouth feel. Not a bad beer but just kind of thin and alcoholic.

Great tasting Ale. Dose not have strong after taste. I think this would go great with a steak. Good times!

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong toffee, caramel and nut notes. The flavor is a bit different. I get some strong caramel, light smoke, maple, brown sugar and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle was a gusher. Pours a hazy brown with fluffy tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of sweet molasses, caramel, toffee, toasted barley, and a hint of booze. Taste follows, but no real booze burn at all. Nice, nothing awesome, but solid.
