A full brown beer with a red tint. The head is lacy and tan. The aroma is malty and enticing. The flavor is all malt and very good. Its not too sweet. It has a medium bite and tastes sessionable but it can’t be being a doppel. TizzleJizzle (792) - Garland, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Tap at flying saucer Garland with Brittanynl. Poured a beautiful reddish color with a thin white top. Taste of caramel, honey, oak, sweet, esters, delicious. Sticky, syrupy, surgery on the palate. Complex brew, just another amazing brew from Deep Ellum. Texas brews, FTW! brittanynl (42) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Rich honey flavor very sweet like a desert! Very tasty it has amazing lacing and a dark mahogany color GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2012
The honey is very overwhelming on this beer. Tastes like a honey drink flavored with beer. The flavor has an interesting finish with a bit of tang. Overall too overpowering in sweetness. Dixonian (1657) - Plano, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2012
On tap at the brewery.
Dark brown pour with some off-white head. Nose of wildflowers, floral, oak, honey sweetness, and some dark fruit. Flavor is very sweet with a cloying mouthfeel. Woody with a crazy amount of honey.

On tap at DEBC - dirty brown in color with an average head. Had an initial sweet honey taste and aroma but the more I drank the harder it was to finish it. Malty and medium. mar (5470) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Black pour with a khaki head. Nose is sweet, honey, rich malts, chocolate, good shit. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2012
(Draught) Cloudy deep brown, syrupy consistency in the glass, medium tan colored head with natural-looking carbonation. Nose of medium toasted oak, wildflowers, fresh cut meadow, honey, sweet, smells absolutely incredible, reminds me of Hill Farmstead (the place and their beers). Taste is exceptionally sweet, oaky, esters, cloying, unfermented residual sugars, feels like the beer was perhaps rushed to market a bit. I think with time, and left to attenuate, it would be REALLY good. As it stands, it’s just too sweet, sticky, and oaky. Carbonation amount is damn near perfect, so it’s a shame the beer isn’t less sweet and oaky. jhamp9 (2027) - Corinth, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Murky brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is nutty, toffee, and sweet. Taste is very sweet and syrupy. Alcohol is concealed. Flat and sticky on the palate. Took a while to finish the glass. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 18, 2012
On tap at the Deep Ellum 1st Anniversary Party. Served in a special Pollenator snifter.
The beer pours a clear medium to dark brown color with a small off-white head. The aroma is very sweet with a good dose of toffee and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is not up to par with the aroma. I get the toffee and biscuit from the aroma, but there is also something off in the flavor. It is a little bit hard to pinpoint exactly what the off flavor is, but it is a little bit metallic and also has some vegetable notes. As I drank more of the beer, the off notes got stronger and stronger and eventually resulted in me pouring the beer our. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. I really wanted this beer to be good, but something was off in this batch. Hopefully if it is brewed again it will be better.
