Thanks to csbosox for this brew,one of 23.Pours a dark reddish/garnet. has a nice malty nose with some soft hops coming in also.Something else,maybe a little caramel.Sweet but not SWEET,and a good blend with the roasted malts. A nice beer.Thanks Chris. jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pours translucent read with a small head and tiny bubbles. Nose is mildy malty, sweet, a bit of sharpness. Very flavorful with a nice sweet almost candy-like beginning, toasted malts and a smoky finish, with what tastes like crystal hops in the middle. Great, lingering slightly smoky aftertaste. Overall very good. jus10cider82 (67) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Pours murky red with smallish head. No visible carbonation or lacing. Smells of light malt and citrus. I like the medium mouthfeel. Not bad, maybe BBC can make some decent beers. (12 oz bottle/shaker) Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Pours a deep red color. Small white head. Aroma is malty, with a hint of spice to it. Flavor is sweet and malty, roasted malt with some fruit and nuttyness. Very nice brew. Thanks to Heemer for this one! AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Brownish-red color with minimal head. Aroma is warm, malty with toasted caramel and dark friut. Flavor is very malty with toasted caramel, milk cream, dry bakers chocolate underpinning, and a nice balancing bitterness.

Deep brown color with a thin but foamy white head. Malty aroma. Good hefty mouthfeel, full of roasted malt with a hint of nut. Slight hops to balance. Terrific! robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Brown Coloring. Small Head. Aroma: Malt...Complex.. I agree with Pigfoot that it reminds one of a winter ale... Very Good Beer, But Wasn’t Expecting the Wonderful Malt Flavoring to this Beer. Roasts.. A bit of Spice... Very Nice! matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Hey, thanks to Mjames for sending me this brew some time ago… It was pretty damn tasty!

Pours a dark cherry wood colored body, and a tan cap of head… nice lacing after every vertical / horizontal / vertical motion of the glass! The aroma is somewhat spicy and malty at the same time. Big notes of wood chips… with an underlying suggestion of cinnamon stick and cracked peppercorn. The flavor brought a lightly citric tartness.. then a sweet hint of molasses and toasted walnut and almond bagel in the finish- there was such a nice nutty presence here! The palate was rich and tempting…. An unexpectedly enjoyable and drinkable ale! – Thanks again Mike!
Color: a clear reddish hue, and the head is short, off-white.
Aroma is a surprising delight, rich and ambrosial: caramel, nuts, some dark fruits, cherry, citrus, and an overall roasted feel. Puts me in mind of a barleywine or a winter ale, more than a typical Irish ale.
Tasty, warm texture. Hops are lying low, true to style. Malt is big, but not too much so. Taste is sweet and delicious. I loved this oned all the way down! obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2004
Deep mahogan color with light head. Floral hops with some sweet cherry and citrus notes. Mouthfeel is quite rich with fine bubbles. Toffee, and chocolate are predominate but an evergreen hop quality shows on the mid and finish. Refreshing, yet lingering finish.
