12oz bottle, mohogany in color, off wite small head, roasted malt nose, spicey sun tea malt flavor that turns into bitter hops, warm mouthfeel, better than i expected. biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2005
I really love the new labels. The neck label is particularly captivating. Pours a ruby red with a foamy tan head. Unique fruit juice aroma with some pomegranite, cherry and grape. Some biscuit and hops also. Strong alcohol flavor upfront. Quite fruity and hoppy with a balanced bitter finish. Kind of reminds me of Snow Cap. The alcohol dominates too much.

Sample from a bottle at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest (CWBF) 2013. Last one of the night. Kind of rushed this one, a drunk friend had just spilled beer on my notebook and I was writing around the wet spots. Clear brown. Decent khaki head. Spice, toasted malts. Smooth, ligther carbonation. More dry texture. Moderate spice. Solid spice ale. Light bitter. Light sweet. deyholla (11505) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2013
On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear brown with a touch of amber and a brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has earthy grains and light spice with a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is similar with earthy dark grains and light spice but not much of a hop profile. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - MAR 5, 2013
On tap. Dark red with a tan top. Scent is caramel. Taste is caramel and earth.

Got some interesting news and didnít want to head home so stopped at draught 55 although not much excitement on menu so went with this serviceable brew. Pours dark amber with thin head. Nose of toasted malt. Tastes of toast, some dark fruit, pine, and earthy bitterness. Thin palate. VinegarStroke (421) - Napa, California, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle: Deep brown with red. Clear. Good light tan head. Malt driven. Slight dank edge like North Coast and Mendocino beers. Dank lees. Cocoa, chocolate. Off dry to dry. Slightly bitter. Medium weight. Reasonably balanced. Lacks depth and length. Easy drinking. Beerandhockey8 (395) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - JAN 5, 2014
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep copper, very thick tan head. Nose is a little more subtle then I would have thought. Notes of roasted malt, coffee, hops for a little balance. Taste is mostly bitter, medium body. Finishes clean, balanced out with the hops. Nice beer from Full Sail, a little plain but a nice winter beer.
