Pours dark reddish amber with a mostly receding tan head. Aroma of toffee, pine, hops, toasted grain, and raisin. Taste is grainy, toffee, plums with dark Belgian malts. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slighty sticky with moderate carbonation. Not too strong, but the dark malts threw this one off for me. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Draft @ the 5. Clear amber color with a hint of red. Small off-white head. Malty aroma with a mild earthy hop. Fruity malt flavor with hops mixed in. Nice bitter finish with a light warmth. pintocb (654) - Hoon, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2006
Brownish color. Smells piney and citrusey. Flavor is malty with some sweet tones and lots of piney hops. Not bad. aracauna (3651) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2006
This has a light, clean maltiness with a touch of peppery hops. It pours a dark tea color. This isn’t all that interesting of a beer, but it is quite refreshing. Seems like it’d be a great summer beer for hanging out. hurleymanvw (101) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Nice red color with white head. Nice citrus aroma. Nice but complex flavor hard to pick out what the flavors were. Good beer with nice finish.

on draught. Big O pours a deep blood red with a slowly fading white head. The aroma is strongly of roses accented by brighter citrus notes. There’s a very complex, deep flavor, but I’m not diggin’ the leathery notes in it. On the upside, there’s plenty of tasty woody notes, bright hops, earth, pine, some peach, and a fine toffee foundation. Pretty unique brew.
