On tap at the Alchemist on my way to Hill Farmstead for BWBDV. Pours a ruby brown with orange highlights under a medium sized white head. Sweet caramel and a bit of nuttiness. Medium bodied, sweet and toasty, lightly bitter. Long toasty hop bitterness on the finish. Sammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
Good red colour, nice job of getting bitterness from 28 IBU. Can get lost in the "big beers" available, and the most malty tasting which is still moderate, but still a show of craft. Recommend for the less adventurous, or with food. Thinner mouthfeel, active carbonation. Fresh clean taste.

Malty sweetness is very caramelly and fruity, recalling tons of cherries and berries. Problem is, that’s about all this aroma can offer, and it does get tired after a while.
Caramel and toasted malts combine with the silky fruitiness, but their union is quiet and somewhat boring. There is nothing to get excited here, and nothing to hook you for a subsequent sip. Their most ordinary pint that day.
Prayers at church don’t mean a thing if you don’t believe.
Deep amber coloured beer with a very creamy light tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy. Grapefruit and soft sweet caramel. Lightly toasted malts and a soft fruitiness. Flavour is lovely as well... soft toasted caramel and a bit of brown/cocoaish malts. Fairly earthy hoppiness initially, but then finishes with a fruity hop bite. Lingering zesty/herbal hop finish. czar (9412) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2011
