Soft, sweet, malty, toffee and boozy. Nice. Thanks to John at the RBSG for sharing! BVery (10711) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - AUG 15, 2013
Bottle from John himself! Rich orange pour. Sweet caramel, quite dry, wood, and it feels a bit volatile evaporating off the tongue. Nice brew. j12601 (12973) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle shared at Paul’s housewarming tasting. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head. Big and sweet, caramel and oxidization. Medium-bodied, sweet and full of caramel and sugary malt. Lots of sweetness into the finish, hints of chocolate and warm toast. Tasty enough, Drake (14033) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2013

Bottle thanks a trade! Pours a clear amber with a creamy white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains and light fruits with a bit of a boozy backing. Flavor combine booze and sweet grains with a touch of light fruit but a bit heavy on the booze.
