Pours clear, reddish brown w/ a fluffy, lingering tan head that sticks to the glass. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee with hints of wood, some spice, walnuts and a little banana and vanilla. Crisp, lively carbonation that rounds out to a smooth, creamy mouth. Flavors follow the nose. There were caramel and spice notes, as well as some bitterness that leaves a dry finish. Really enjoy this one.

Amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Sweet fruity flavour with biscuit and toffee. Too sweet

Bottle thanks to kaggie. Poured brown with a khaki head. Aroma was nutty, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor was coffee, slight nutty, some floral note, and some bitterness. Body was medium with high carbonation.

douglas88 (5798) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a small white head. The aroma is heavy coffee, some smoke. The flavor is a rich coffee infused brew, some spicy peppers- I mean, I swear there are slightly spicy green peppers in this, which I know there are not, so what causes this?-, caramel and some metallic spicy bite in the finish. Very much a strong coffee beer.

Pours nice & dark brown. No doubt an Imperial brown due to the significant hop background. Cool label design too. A nice cool weather ale.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Serving: Draft at The Distillery. It pours a nice amber color with a lasting, creamy, tan head. The nose has notes of green peppers? The flavor has some cooked green pepper notes and a lasting bitterness. I canít help but think this one is off. Not my cup of tea.

Bottle pours ruby-brown, with billowy off-white head. Nose is caramel, slight oak, a bit of milk chocolate, vanilla and apple undertones. A slight whiff of alcohol. The burnt caramel malts really come through on the tongue, along with more oak and slightly stronger apple cider notes. Iím a bit concerned about the pronounced alcohol burn on the palate for just an 8% beer. If WH can tweak this, it can be a real winner.

aracauna (3036) - Georgia, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Beautiful color, dark and and clear. Very nutty aroma. Nicely malty flavor, not too rich. Slight harshness in the finish, but nothing off-putting.

Ratman197 (9454) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Craftbeerdesign (ThanksGeoff) poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, light cocoa, light cola and a hint of oak. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, cocoa and oak with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

GBBF. Cask. Light haze on this amber beer. Reasonable white head. Light dry palate. A little raw tasting pale malt with a trace of toffee. Mild orange hop provides balance but I found this beer to be too dry overall.
