12 oz bottle. Clear rusty brown with a puffy tan head. Nose hints at mulled wine with raisin. Medium body with a coating mouthfeel and fuzzy carb. Taste is spruce, blackberry and caramel. Bitter greens aftertaste a disappointment.

Bottle shared by JoeMcPhee. Thanks! Pours amber in color, good clarity, with an off white head. Smells of diacteyl, butterscotch notes and peppery hop character. Creamy carbonation. Light caramelized malt base in the flavor. Sweet and spicy malt character with some bitterness reminiscent of fruit skins. Finishes with a peppery bitterness. A bit simple and off.

The Dan Journal #446. Tasted 2/26/11. 12oz bottle. Filtered with a dark amber maple hue. Bubbled and trace ring of bonewhite head. Aromas of rye toast and citrus fruit. Medium to full bodied with a sweet palate. A nice off setting bitterness to compliment the sweet. Subtle sweet malts with a lot of dark toast and bitter resinous hops. Decent.

Decent...very warming from the abv level but relatively uncomplex given how much you are drinking. It’s english in style so I guess that means flat. Fairly sweet, no hops.

Mouth creamy, malt job. Malt in aroma. Not bad but finishable only if very thirsty. A tad of dryness.1900th bottle review

Bottle in trade. Thanks. Pours a reddish clear color with short lived beige head. Smell is sweet, slightly nutty, and artificially and overly sweet, in fact. Taste is a bit more balanced and much nicer than the smell, with a tartness, some burnt sugar flavor, a bit of alcohol and perhaps nuttiness. Kind of a bitter burnt sugary lingering flavor. Medium body and normal carbonation. Not too shabby.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Pours deep dark purple red clear with slight amount of foamy tannish head. Aroma is syrupy sweet with lots of nuttiness and dark fruits. Flavor reminds me of a dark cherry slurpee. Dark cherry sweetness dominates with lots of buttery caramel flavor. Bit of a boozy medicinal edge. Overall, just so so.

Very hazy brownish orange color. Roasted malty aroma, very sweet, overpoweringly so. Hints of spices and a slight bitter finish.

A deep copper amber ale with a thick moka head. In aroma, butterscotch, oily and cloying. In mouth, a sweet nutty and musty malt with light nutmeg, vanilla, oily, cloying. On tap at Sunset Grill, Jan. 16 2011.
