Cloudy dark amber brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, sweet berries and stone fruit, slight biscuit. Taste is maraschino cherry, apple, caramel, a touch bready. Quite nice. andrewje41 (4094) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Draft 12 oz pour at the Tangletown location. Muddy copper color pour with a quick fade head. Good amount of spice on the aroma, paired with a sweet malt. Malt forward flavor with some ripe fruit. Maybe some banana. Easy drink. Fine winter beer here. raphael (1282) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2014
On tap at Elysian. Aromas of alcohol, wood smoke, brown sugar. Flavor is sweet-- brown sugar, orange, sawdust. Hesitant, for an elk, and a little thin in the mouth/ Nice but nothing special. mcberko (18441) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear dark copper amber with a small white head. Aroma is quite subtle and restrained, with toasted malts and a mild hop profile. Flavour is robust, with notes of caramel malts, roasted hazelnuts, and a nice resinous hop profile. Really well-balanced, robust and drinkable. Very nice stuff. fiulijn (20992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver

Hazy red-amber color with compact head. Mild malt aroma. But the malt flavor is much better: lean and not too sweet, but almost the same profile of a Barley Wine, also a bit nutty; good bitterness level; quite elegant and clean.
On tap last night at Tangletown. Poured brown with a tiny white head. Nose of demerara sugar and hints of Earth. Flavor is real sweet like sweet plums up front. The demerara sugar is present throughout, nicely. Lots of toffee and caramel flavors. Tiny hint of hops towards the finish. BillKismet (4090) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Gorgeous amber-wood body with ring of head. Juicy hop and candi malt aroma. Candi sugar flavor with tinges of ether hovering above the body. Wet and a bit leafy with a juicy-fruity finish. Oakes (18209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2012
Cloudy aber-brown with a big rich head. The aroma is kind of faint - vaguely nutty, earthy malts. Lots of dark fruit, some toasty notes, moderate hops. Finishes with almost a blackberry fruitiness. As it warms, some gooseberry comes out as well. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2012
Draft @ brewpub. Dark red-brown. Superb lacing. Blackberry in aroma and crusty brown bread. The flavors have more dark raisin like flame raisin and also the blackberry. Interesting flavors! Here the alcohol is well disguised. Very nice. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Nose of caramel sweetness, toffee, light roast, peppery earthy bitterness with jsut a hint of citrus as well. Pours darker amber, nice creamy beige-ish hread. The flavor is malty initially - caramel, toffee, toast, light roast followed by earthy peppery bitterness, a hint of citrus, and some residual sweetness in the finish. Smooth nice mouthfeel, creamy body, decent balance. A nice winter ale.
