[email protected] Time. Heavy sweetness. Spicey raisin and toffee apple, some oak/pine, some brandy like warmth in the finish, resiny, strong and full.

This scotch colored strong ale has a light candy aroma--that lacked potence for some reason. Candied cherry flavor becomes more pronounced with each sip. This beer seems more suited for Christmas time than for its summer release While a tad sweet for my tastes, this is a beer that should pair well with desserts.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 7, 2002
On tap GABF ’02: Dark orange in color, mild sweet aroma. Syrupy mouthfeel and huge sweet flavor. Way too sweet if you ask me.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2006
Another enjoyable beer. Somewhat sugary sweet aroma, with some candi like brown sugar and modest toffee maltiness. Somewhat rich with some maple syrupy type thing going on the palate, but overall pretty enjoyable, could be a little more balanced.

OldMrCrow (2443) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2006
On tap at the brewery.

Pours a dark amber with a modest head; the aroma is candy and citrus hops. The flavor is dominated by the sweet malts, especially at first. I taste marshmellow fading into a blend of dark sugar and strong hops. While this beer goes down, it’s too sweet for my taste and really doesn’t really deliver the goods for either the 8% that it packs or given the other offerings from this brewery.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2007
On tap at Big Time. Pours clear dark copper with a full sweet body and light carbonation. Citrus toffee nose. Toffee and fruit in the taste. Nice finish.

3.1
BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2006
Ambber with minimal off white head. Aroma is brown sugar and malt. Quite sweet with a toffee and rich flavour. Thick, nearing syrupy, but a little too sweet for me.

3.5
glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 11, 2007
Cloudy amber w/ small head. Good malt sweetness. Just a bit of grapefruit hop taste. Alcohol is fairly subtle. Not hot at all. Slight bitter finish. Tasty, drinkable and not over the top.

2.7
19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Not sure what they were aiming for. Thin, wet dog and cardboard malt component. Dark, stale molasses. Plums and raisins, veggies, obnoxiously bitter for the style.
