The (not so) shit beer tasting at Leightons stratospheric flat. Thanks Leighton. Hazy amber beer, tidy pale cream colored head. Palate is airy and dry. Light airy malt cream. Dried fruits, lightly tangy. Very light spice in the semi dry finish. Not bad.
Can shared at the Night of Garbage. I got this somewhere in America. Pours clear amber with a frothy tan head. The nose has aged, dusty pine, dried fruits, bread. Medium sweet flavor with dry fruitcake, grainy bread, a bit of dried fruits, dates. Medium bodied with fineto average carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Lightly warming to finish with slight piney bitterness, more dried fruits, bready fruitcake. Not bad.

Taste comprises candied orange peel, dates, sweet ring, candied sugars.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying sweet tasting closure.
Ok stuff. mcberko (18573) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2011
12 oz. can, pours a dark amber brown with a small beige head. Aroma of hops upfront, some bready malts, hints of caramel and dark fruits, and a bit of grapefruit. Flavour is a mellow blend of sweet caramel malts, citrus hops and grapefruit, with some subtle spicy notes thrown in there - the flavour dies on the palate very quickly leaving little aftertaste. Nice subtle flavours, but for 8.5%, this lacks a deep flavour profile. Mildly enjoyable. jtclockwork (17100) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Draft. Pours reddish amber with wwhite head. Nose/taste of berry, spicy hops, peppermint, light cocoa and sweet malt. Medium body. bhensonb (15612) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Can from Malt & Vine - but the can ABV is 8.5%. Pours dark ruddy copper with a creamy light tan head. Aromas of resin and darkish fruit. Near full bodied with creamy carb. Flavor is pine resin with some accompanying darkish fruit character (can states brewed with dates!). A good beer which could stand imperialization.

Can thanks to Leighton at the Night of Garbage. It pours deep amber with a small yellow-white head. The nose is pine, raisin, date, prune, citrus peel and brown bread. The taste is bitter-sweet, date, prune, fig, caramel, sugary, berry, toast and candy with a sweetish finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Smells a bit better than it tastes. Solid stuff nonetheless.
