A pre-winter winner.

stretchfest (79) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Bottle. The beer is clear, but very dark, similar to black coffee. The head is very thin, but creamy and lasts the whole beer. Malty and caramel smell. The taste is malty, nutty, and a little chocolatey. Bitter finish. Feels wonderful in the mouth.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2007
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquor - Pours a clear dark brown color with a half finger thick light tan head. Very light spotty lacing. Aroma is light roasted malt and light spicey herbal hops. Flavor is lightly spiced caramel malt. Medium body. Has a slight lingering aftertaste. Worth a try.

A very nice looking Red with an adequate head, lace and longevity. It has a sweet yet moldy fresh earth aroma. I noticed the body before the flavor. It’s thick and finishes with just enough tackiness to hold the malt flavor. There’s a slight tangy flavor that you find on the edges of your tongue that lends a refreshing note to it. It’s an interesting beer and worth revisiting every “Autumn”.

Bottle. Pours deep brownish-red with little head. Mild nutty smell. Taste of toasted malt, yeast, carmel and mild fruit. Very fine beer and great for fall!

Very dark amber in pour with very little head. Some vinegar on the nose and roasted nuts. Kind of sharp sour flavor with some dried fig and an earthy finish.

12oz bottle, courtesy of tjthresh. Thanks, Tom! Pours a clear, very dark cola color; fluffy, light tan head with great retention and lacing that coats the glass; a beautiful pour. Candy sugar and cola and toasted malts in the aroma; mildly sticky maltiness. Medium mouthfeel: solid malt core (maple syrup, dried red fruits: made me think "scotch ale") without much stickiness; very drinkable and well-composed autumn beer; light mineral hop bitterness on the perimeter. Some darker fruits and toasted malts appear in the finish. Unexpectedly good.

VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Dark brown body with thin light brown head. Lightly sweet malt, faint nut aroma. Very thin on the palate. Flavor is some dry, roasted malt, a little bitterness, a little bready. Undistinguished mild nutty/malty aftertaste.

3.5
dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Nice color but thin head. Aroma is a little malty and weird. The flavor lets you know that it’s not an amber, my first thought. The oldish taste is there with some alcohol too, but pretty good.

brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Sampled at the brewery during GABF. Very dark brown and opaque with a nice off white head. Heavy malty flavor with a syrupy hint of vanilla. Something in the finish just turns me off. Malty aroma with some kind of syrupy malt hint that, again, doesn’t do it for me. Creamy coating mouth feel.
