On tap at the brewery. Pours a reddish color with a small white head. A sweet fruity nose, berries, some toffee. The flavor is caramel, toffee, Belgian fruity yeast, berries. Smooth. Solid beer. Panzuriel (2446) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Appearance: Medium red brown. Slightly hazy. Finger of tan foam
Nose: Molasses and caramelized sugar. Hints of earth and roasted nuts.
Taste: Big deeply roasted caramel malts. Lightly sweet. touch bitter. Roasty with hints of earth.
Body: Medium and lively.
Parting thoughts: More an American strong ale than I was expecting. Typical spice expectations completely absent. I liked it, but it was quite different than I was anticipating.

Dark reddish brown. Intersting with the bright fruity hop profile with an undertone of earth and caramel. Medium bodied. Not too shabby HourGlass13 (1101) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Poured a dark brown color with redish highlights, and a medium off white head. Moderate complex spicy, nutmeg and sweet malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Taste is hoppy with a leathery note, spicy, with a medium sweet finish. This is a solid beer.

Amazing skor bar and smoke aroma. A real nasal feast. Unusual flavor does not match aroma at all, instead channelling deep leather and horehound flavors. Some medicinal notes. Pours a gorgeous clear garnet with a wispy off white head. nearbeer (5669) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2017
650 ml. Mostly clear chestnut with a creamy disc of foam. Aroma is sourish molasses and squash with a hint of earthy spice. Flavor is the same mix plus iced tea with a squeeze of lemon on the finish. Medium body has smooth low-medium carbonation and a good balance. onceblind (10893) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Black hue with a foamy large beige head. Lovely herbal and winter spicy nose with fruit and cocoa and clove and mulling spice. Full rich flavor that’s roasty and earthy with mulling spice like clove and cinnamon and a kiss of cacao but also stoutly and richly dark malty and a kiss winter herbal-y. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2015
On draught at ecliptic- pours dark amber with medium head. Nose of hop and malt. Taste is of toasted malt, hop, caramel, and grass. Nice winter beer.

On draught at Ecliptic Brewing. Deep dark clear amber color. Aroma is dates, citrus hops, and caramel malt. Taste is similar, with some light cooking spice components. A really pleasing winter warmer.
