OldMrCrow (2442) - 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.

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.
