hopscotch (11170) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle... Clear ruby pour with a fat-bubbled, white head. Not much going on with the nose - some breadiness and light toastiness. Full-bodied and creamy with tingly carbonation. Lightly acidic and toasty flavor with a mild measure of bread-crust bitterness. Finishes tangy and bright.

3.3
mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
[5647-20130816] Bottle. Mild roasted barrel grains aroma. Clear, dark brown body with a quick bubbly light tan head. Boozy barrel toasted malt flavour. Medium-full body. Bit of a kick to it. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

IrishBoy (4224) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bomber from Pauls Liqours, Cayucos. Nose is toffee, raisin pie, and a boozy yeast note. Clear amber brown with a medium lightly lacing cream head. Flavor is lightly sweet, light alcohol warmth, and dark fruits. Not worth the money I had to pay for this wax sealed anniversary ale.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Bottle. Clear reddish amber with a short lived fizzy head. Sweet molasses and dark fruit aroma. Thick oily palate. Tastes of dates, raisins, chocolate biscuit, plum and caramel. Nice complexity.

3.4
peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Clear darker brown pour with a scattering of tan foam. Sweet raisin, molasses, toffee, candied sugar, and light alcohol vapors in the aroma. Taste is very sweet with candied sugar, raisin, fig, and a pleasant bitterness intermixed with alcohol heat through the finish. Slightly coating mouthfeel. Okay and if you take the price into consideration this was a very poor buy.
