Bottle. Poured a cloudy, amber, almost ruby in color -- quite beautiful! Very little head, dissipated quickly. Delicious flavor. Fruity, but still with caramel smoothness -- enough bite to keep you going back for more, but never bitter. Wonderful finish! Delightful winter addition to Ale Asylum’s great line up! kjbryan (8) - Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2012 does not count
caramel, chocolate, deep brown color with no head, medium sweetness, thick feel, full body - this is one of my favorite beers from a too overlooked brewery. If you have the chance to try this on tap or in bottles don’t hesitate. Just a bit sweet and not roasty at all, this beer is begging for a snifter. sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 22, 2009
Tasted 1/3/09. 12oz bottle. Slightly hazy with an orange golden hue. Bubbled ring of off-white head. Sweet nose with hints of raisins, cinnamon, molassia and a citrus banana yeast character. Rather full bodied with a sweet malt character. Both the malts and the yeast offer sweet nuances. Flavors of dark berries and citrus, Belgian style yeast. Slight bitternessin the middle. Nice citrus zest. Sticky finish that lingers with a pleasant mix of cola and a touch burnt wood and caramel. Solid style and interpretation. Lotta respect for these guys. Another Ace. kkleu357 (640) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Sweet smelling. Banana smell. Medium orange in color. Lots if flavor. Hints if banana with a rich caramel yeast flavor. Really tasty. Slightly expensive at $12 a sixer, but worth it. Buy it before its gone. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2014
I had two of these, and wow, fantastic. Spice and nutty on the nose, with the palate being the same. A nice toasty sweet finish lingers around a while. The higher ABV is well hidden and makes this dangerous!

On tap at Haymarket. Flavor is boisterously fruity and spicy with a bit of alcohol warming but an overall bright character. Somewhat caramelly. Slightly dry finish. Quite good. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Ive been waiting a while to try this brew. Pours a semi translucent amber colour with a huge off white head. Aroma is beautiful, enticing with ripe cherries, raspberries and sweet rich caramel malts on the nose. Taste is flavourful with ripe fruit notes and a creamy mouthfeel.
