Draft at arcadia in Kalamazoo. Deep brown with a beige head. Toffee and some dark fruit. alexsdad06 (10416) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle consumed multiple times from notes. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor had caramel/toffee malts, some fruitiness, some alcohol, hints of chocolate, mild to moderate bitterness. Medium body, smooth finish. Decent, but forgettable. jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2014
2009 vintage. Sweet and slightly oxidized, but not bad. Has some strong caramel and minimal amount of hops. njager246 (697) - grand rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2014
Sweet and chocolate aroma, some citrus hops as well as darker fruits in the flavor... nice OxfordBeer (16) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2014
On cask at brewry, poured into 10oz nonic. Dark amber, slightly hazy with very little carbonation. Soapy offwhite head leaving laces on the glass. Nose is fruity, sweet malt, piney hops. Medium bodied (wasnt expecting it to be this light), well balanced, boring mouthfeel with short sweet finish.

12oz bottled on 2/23/12 as 9% ABV with 51 IBUs - pours murky dark amber with tan head and thin lacing. Nose is nutty caramel with floral notes. Earthy qualities with sip. Fairly bitter with subdued sweetness. Kind of flat. Enjoyable. jdb288 (584) - Wake Forest, North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2013
You get the malts right away. Reminiscent of a scotch ale to me. Boozy but not overly so. Slightly sweet, creamy. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
bottle. 2010 vintage. amber with minimal head. sweet caramel and toffee malt. some fruitiness, raisin, etc. alcohol is pretty evident. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Wow. Pours a golden amber. Lots of malty toffee notes. Very floral aromas that come through on the flavor. This is a big beer. Hat at Goehner's octoberfest.
