Amber colored, with rocky beige head. Toasted amber and chocolate malt nose, quite nice. Flavor is similarly toasted amber malt, with nibbets of chocolate mixed in. Easy sipper that seems closer to 5.5% than 6.9% ABV. This is a solid toasted amber brew.

pours from bottle a dark auburn with barely noticeable head. aromatics are of spices, winter, spruce, alcohol, and leather. the flavors follow the same path with the addition of dark fruits, particularly plums and prunes. i wish theyd have a rating for beer name, because slippery slopes one of the better winter ones ive seen.

12oz bottle poured into goblet glass Augustign goblet. Clear and dark ruby color. Lacing covers the surface of the beer. This is an Americanized English Strong Ale or maybe a session American Strong Ale. Aroma is unsugary slightly spoiled fruit maltiness. Its almost a bit barleywine-like. There is a bit of toasted malt. Nothing overpowering but strong. Flavor is sweet dark fruits at first and it fades quickly to an earthy malt with a faint generic hop end. Lightly sweet but unsugary, low hop character, well restrained but strong dark fruit presence. Its like a mini barleywine. Cascade Lakes is 2 for 2 with me, Im always not expecting much but am very pleasantly surprised.

On tap at Bend pub. Pours out a pale crisp copper topped with a white head. Nose is cardboard grass and sweetness. Taste is as the nose but with a good caramel sweetness.

It poured a bright copper color with a beige head. The aroma was of bread, malts, hops and maybe a hint of cocoa. The taste was bready, a little chocolate, some more malts and hops. Nice. Thanks Hayduke!

12 ounce bottle from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This beer is deep amber and has just a little beige ring. The aroma is malty, chocolatey, and syrupy. The first sip brings a lot of grain. Citrus hops add some brightness and zest. Light notes of nuts and syrup. Late I get pine and some kind of spice. Dark fruit and then chocolate syrup in the finish. An interesting beer. It went trough a few style changes and that was fun.

raphael (1183) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 21, 2014
I sense a spice or two, plus caramel and pine. Yes tastes spicy too, ginger & coriander, plum, lemon. The off white head fades quickly amber-brown a little cloudy.

Bottela. Clear brown color with fleeting tan head. Nutty, caramel, dust aromas. Medium bodied. Nutty, mild chocolate flavors with earthy dirt, and caramel___smooth finish---not bad.

Clear red brown pour some thick head. Aroma of burnt lactic caramel. Tastes the same + some smoke. It is both bitter and sweet, though Id hesitate to call it well balanced. Its sorta lacking in the smoothness department. watery and sticky on the palate too.
