This beer is one I look forward to all year long. Bold forward, not too bitter, love to spruce taste! iskandns (1) - - FEB 26, 2017 does not count
I usually like everything Alaskan makes but this beer is fucking horrible. Way too malty and utterly unenjoyable.

bottle @ Chief Market / Lima OH --- best by 4/19/17 ---Clear dark amber, beige head that sinks rapidly to a thin cover, spots of lace. Taste is caramel malt, light carbonation, hardly a glimmer of hops, and more sweet to finish. This is flat enough to make me question the age, but April is still three months away. Not a keeper.

12oz bottle from the Malt Shoppe in Tosa. Orangey amber pour with a bit of an off-orange head. Sweet malts, some spruce, some other tangy components, and some spices. This is a very interesting blend, and quite unique of a brew. Had a few times a long time back and had little memory. Not bad if looking for that type of stuff. 13.4 RigginTrav (1) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2017 does not count
Its alright, and it was at a decent price, I didn’t like the after taste. A weird carmely aftertaste that I was not a big fan of, but I have a 12 pack of it now so I guess I’ll drink it. StoutBeerReviews (148) - Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Never had an old ale before. tastes like a more complex version of an amber. this one is quite sweet with lots of different spices and flavors going on. I like it a lot. mjmoen (534) - - DEC 17, 2016
B-. Pours a clear dark amber color with white head. Smells like you’re in the middle of a forest. Kinda harsh finish
