Delirium (669) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2008 Bottle. Pours brown-red with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malt, various winter spices, chocolate, and some woody hops. Flavor is woody hops, metallic hops, some light fruit, caramel malt, vanilla, and winter spices. Gets sweeter as it warms. Not bad, but another in a long line of middle-of-the-road sweet/spiced winter warmers.

Bought this because it was on clearance at BevMo. Didnít smell like much, sort of chocalatey I guess. Flavor is of caramel, toffee maybe some chocaolate, and a sort of musty, earthy flavor. Not bad, gives a nice warmth to the belly.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Dark amber colour with thick light tan head that retains well. Nice lace. Nose is grassy, some citrus, and baked goods sweetness. On the palate the palate is some faint chocolate, malt sweetness, and semi-harsh alcohol to hops flavor. The flavors arenít integrated very well. Finish has a metallic grassy characteristic.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Pours a dark amber color with off-white head. Tastes of hops, caramel, and malts. Pretty smooth and drinkable. Good beer.

Brandon1989 (655) - Lewisville, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
2014 Bottle:7.2% ABV. Pours a hazy golden/orange color with a thick off white head. The aroma is hops, caramel malts, and bread. The taste is sweeter up front, possibly the caramel. There is also some distinct pepper to this beer as well. I also pick up a moderate amount of hops and bitterness as well. The finish is crisp and has some breadiness as well. It is hard to pin point but there is almost some almond in the flavor as well. Great beer I highly recommend.

Quake1028 (638) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Another NW beer courtesy of Ibrew2or3. The man is unstoppable. Amber colored body, with a small tan head. Fades quickly, leaving no lace, only a ring of foam at the edges of the beer. Nose is full of hops, very spicy and citrusy, along with caramel malts and some other spices. Also smells a little musty, but not bad and really doesnít harm the beer. Flavor is resiny hops, pine, citrus and balancing sweet malts. Medium bodied, oily slick on the palate. FInish is bitter, drying hops and an ending sweet malt note. Solid.

Bottle, Some malts, a bit metallic aroma, pours a dark amber with a tan head. Nice malty flavor light hops and a touch of spiciness. Pretty good, as are most of their brews.

3.1
fiercepanda (615) - Missouri, USA - NOV 5, 2011
A clear red amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is herbal, citrusy, and grainy. The flavor is quite floral with some pine and sweet malt taste, but definitely full flavored. Not great, but enjoyable enough.

3.3
Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Golden brown color with a rich malt aroma. Smooth slightly bitter notes. An interesting beer with to me an odd aftertaste. Taste a little like a nutty caesar salad, strange even after a few bottles.

3.5
jlruthven (612) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle, pretty clear orange-amber, finger of white head. Nose is grainy, almost rye-like, British hops evident. A little spruce, a little juniper, lemon pith. Oily body, dry finish, astringent, hint of whisky malt. Cool beer.
