Exemplary within its style. Pours a deep amber color with a small head and good lace. The aroma is very floral semi sweet and fruity. The flavor is nicely nutty and fruity with a light herbal bitterness and some earthy and spicy hops. garthicus (2929) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 2, 2009
Bottle. Dark brown body with a tiny bubbly white head. Aroma: honeycomb malt, slight spice, yeast, lemon and alcohol. Flavour: spicey malt, ’dusty’, dark autumn fruit, corn, tangy fruit peels and a long bitter malt finish. Interesting. gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Pours a deep amber with a large tan head. Had a real hard time pulling a nose off of this. Got some yeast and some ripe fruits at first. Flavor is prune, fig, booze, caramel, some citrus. Decent hop bitterness, toasty malt and raisin. Nice. strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Has a bit of spice note that reminds me almost of a Xmas ale posing as a Strong Bitter. My taste buds are confused, but it’s not bad. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2009
Had this one bottled at the brewery in Milford, New York. Bright, medium yellow pour with an unusual banana and strawberry nose, citrusy, with pineapple, cherry, citrusy hops, spectacularly complex, excellent.

Rich caramel aroma with hints of banana (a bit like bananas Foster). Flavor is medium sweet with a slight hint of metal and a drying hop finish. Interesting beer. AskForJenny (1086) - Ontario, New York, USA - JUN 22, 2009
12oz - Light tan head over brown liquid. Wood and creamy caramel on nose. A sweet malt palate, some molasses character. I liked this one. BiddleBrau (1221) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Deep mahogany with thin head. Malty nose, toasty with caramel. Caramel malt sweet with dry hop bitterness. Not so full on the palate and finishes clean. Real nice go. A stand up double. On tap at Dive 96, NYC markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Thanks Ibrew2or3 for the share. Pours clear orange-gold with an off-white head. Aroma is light fruit, malt, apricot, honey, caramel, sugar. Flavor is similar with lots of honey, malt, some raisin flavor, and a minor hop bite. Starts sweet, hoppy mid-mouth, and bitter with sweet in the finish. Not a bad session beer. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle, courtesy Ibrew2or3. Hazy copper pour, light thin white head. Nose is dry, hoppy, raisin, some caramel and some must. Smooth flavors, lots of raisin, plum, hints of caramel, apricot and many dark fruits. Balanced, drinkable and full-bodied.
