On tap at brewery. Deep red pour. Didn’t get the advertised "chocolate covered cherry," but did get elements of tart booze as it warmed. Hammy78 (977) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle picked up at Tiffany’s in Kalamazoo. Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights on the edges, about a finger of khaki head, nice lines of lace. Nose is sweet caramel and dark fruits. Tastes sweet, a little bit of boozy bite, softness in the mouth, vanilla too. Decent. rumproasts (6052) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 5, 2013
bottle. Amber brown with one finger head. Mild malt, very smooth and sweet. I’ve only had a few old ales that really I appreciated, but this is definitely one. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2013

Deep brown with a red hue. Aroma is chocolate, dark fruit and nuts. A smooth and rich beer, with some nuttiness, and sweetness. and mild fruit flavours. Alcohol very well hidden. It’s an interesting beer, but not mind blowing. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Very black, no head. Rich chocolate, dried fruit, gingerbread and spice on the nose. Strong palate, a little hot, with hot cocoa, cream and baking spice flavors. Tasty. Definitely a winter warmer. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Rich and malty old ale. Matl comes in with some cocoa, very fruity though, the alcohol isn’t too over the top. deyholla (12583) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Sampled from the tap at corner brewery. Poured a deep hazy amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of sweet grains with underlying notes of light fruit and a hint of caramel. Flavor starts with sweet grains and light fruits, but finishes with caramel and a bit of booze. cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Bottle in Detroit. Caramel brown appearance with a tan head. Dark caramel, chocolate, slight toffee aroma. Rich toffee, thick caramel, dark chocolate, slightly nutty flavor with a touch of booziness on the finish.
