Pours a clear, deep copper with a smallish head. A little on the sweet side, almost cloying, but has some hop character. I liked it for the most part. GiddyBoy (121) - USA - JAN 6, 2014
Nice nutty flavor. Can't put my finger on the nuttiness but I like it. Very little bite or head. Smooth and enjoyable.

Bottle at Quotations during our annual outing for the 12 beers of Christmas. Very malty beer with light hints of molasses. Not a bad dark beer at holiday time. anthony850 (473) - Andover, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Good tasting ale with a hint of chocolate

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is malts, candy, and blah. The look is clear, off white head, and orange in color. The taste is grains, sweet, and caramel.

Hearty and earthy caramel aroma...the classic amber scent. Dark red brown color. Intensely sweet malt taste, and notably strong. Heavy, thick body one can gnaw on for a while. Not an American amber so much as a peaty mix of heavy English and Scotch ales. Oogiee (72) - Taipei, TAIWAN - DEC 10, 2013

16 ounce sample at New York SportsGrill in JFK Airport. The aroma has some roasted malt character and some light caramel and toffee notes. Mostly hazy amber-mahogany body with a small, creamy, light tan head. Starts with sweet, chewy slightly roasted malts. Chewy toffee and caramel are also present. Finishes lightly vinous. Super malty. I’d call this a baby barleywine. Good stuff. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft. Bitter ale. Not much caramel. Interesting malt bill. Can't say I care too much for it.

Poured from Bottle. Dark, clear amber. Thich head which lingeres.
Malty aroma. Smooth winter beer. Spiced taste but not overpowering. Very enjoyable
