The aroma seemed pretty muted. The beer pours a dark brick red and has a brown head. The hops are oily and stick to your mouth. The hops and malt are powerful, but there is a watery base that leaves something to be desired.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy with a nice dry finish.

jgb9348 (6050) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Deep dark brown coloured body with a hint of a copper and ruby glow at the bottom and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head that leaves a nice lace on the side of the glass. Aroma of toffee, malt, hops, citrus and a bit of nice pungent hops. Full-bodied; Dense, deep toffee and earthy maltiness showing with a slightly sour hop note, some caramel and other sugars and a good deep metallic and almost fruity note at the end. Aftertaste shows mostly sweet and hoppy tastes combined with a complex maltiness and some subdued alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice deep, strong beer with some good flavours and a strong hop note. sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased at K&E Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 20-November-2011 for US$8.99 sampled at home in Washington on 06-March-2012.

mribm (462) - Ocala, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Expensive ($9.49 + tax for a 22 oz. bottle), but very good. A nice warming drink for the holidays or anytime during the winter months. The label is misleading, since it makes you think that the beer inside is going to be very hoppy. While there is a hop presence, its not as strong as I thought it would be.

Should have read the description on the label. Was on a small FCB kick, so decided to try it blind. Not enough hop and way too much malt for my taste. The aroma is malt graininess over the top. Dont really get much "caramel". Oh well. I can say I tried it.

22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, toasting, leaves, light caramel, light hops, and kinda just red ale scent. Poured very deep orange/copper in color with a large, creamy, dense, tan/beige head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of small, medium, and large-sized particles throughout. Very good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, caramel, hops, and light resin. Medium body. Oily, then lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, caramel, hop finish. 9%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle. Poured amber with a light tan head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Aroma of caramel and citrus hop. The flavor found caramel, light hop, and a candy like background. Medium body, sweet front, bitter back, and a caramel aftertaste.
