A great beer from a brewer that usually brews good but not great beers. The proper russet amber with an off white creamy head that holds it’s shape above the rim and laces nicely. Aroma of fresh bread and carmel. Complex sweet carmel taste balanced perfectly with the proper bitter hops finish. A personal favorite, but unfortunately a seasonal brew. Too much kick for a summertime lawnmower brew. dolemike1 (1289) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2004
Dark reddish amber with a nice creamy white head. Rich malty caramel aroma, similar strong malty caramel and sweet flavors, creamy mouthfeel, decent hops in the finish. Pleasant surprise to find this at the bar this past weekend. vulgarparasite (10) - catasauqua, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2007
I was impressed with this beer. It could be a bit more carbonated, however it has great character and the alcohol content is masked well for not being overly sweet. I drank 5 and felt great. Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2010
Bottle. Pours a rich mahogony with a foamy, tan head. Strong malt aroma with tons of toffee and ripe fruit. Has a barley wine-esque sweetness to it, quite intense, with bread, caramel, more toffee and plum, along with some light, earthy bitterness. Medium to full in body with soft carbonation and a creamy texture. Some brown sugar is also in the flavor, coming out later. Finishes very sweet with lightly toasted malts and toffee. Delicious beer. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2009

12oz bottle. Clear reddish brown pour with a thin tan head. Lots of caramel malt aroma with a bit of peat, some dark fruit and a touch of alcohol. Sweet caramel flavor with toffee and booze before a dry finish. Very nice Scottish. FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 I am not a big fan of this brewer and this is the first time I have had this beer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark mahogany color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma if fruity and hoppy. The flavor is bitter floral hops with molasses, ripe fruity and dry chocolate. Despite the strong hops this beer has a rather "Belgian" character to it. It hides the 9.3% alcohol quite well.
