Way over rated. Super malty with a slight roasted nut flavor. Filling flavor and smells alcohol ly. Pours red with a thick head. Another poor pick by my beer of the month peeps.

Big but well-balanced flavors of fruit, flowers and a little roasted malt. Dry, tart bitterness from end and out. Alcohol is noticeable but not tasted. Onslow (1527) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Crystal clear tawny brown ale with off white head. Aroma is nutty malts, a little fruit and ethanol. Taste is modest malt sweetness up front, some crisp fruit in the middle and a boozy finish. A little unrefined and a little too much ethanol taste for a 7% abv (i.e. - not very strong) brew, but still enjoyable. ttutony (941) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Medium brown with an off-white head. Malty aroma, with biscuit, bread, and toast. Hops come in late on the finish. Slight alcohol warmth. Jrwhitney6 (504) - - OCT 19, 2014
Beer of month club. Pours a clear reddish brown with minimal head. Strong nose of sweet malts. It has a syrupy texture, with some caramel, bread, and a pretty strong alcohol finish. Ok - too much heat.

Purchased in a mixed pack on my trip to Maine. Pours a clean copper colour with a light beige head and some decent lacing. Sweet malt nose with rye grain notes. The taste has rye as well, but is overly sweet. Hard to go down and heavy as well. Not one I would have again. GIJOE (1256) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Pours dark reddish brown with a thin, white head that lingers a while. Nose is malty. Taste is mildly bitter with a long finish. Medium body and lively carbonation. Decent brew. crhensel (145) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a rich amber with no head at all. Aroma is of bread and caramel with a light hint of fruit. Medium bodied on the tongue it's very upfront with the caramel sweetness of the malt but finished with a nice hop bite. The alcohol dies linger for a while but is very satisfying.

It has a pleasant aroma of a bit of caramel, bread, and what smells like honey. It is dark amber in color with a light tan head that clings well to the side. The taste is of caramel, bread, and alcohol almost like scotch. berkshirejohn (6650) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
12oz bottle from a Hannaford Supermarket in Kennebunk, ME. Amber with a thin cream head; rich fruity aroma; strong alcoholic taste with a solid carmael malt body; and some biscuit and dry leafy hops to finish. Sadly the alcohol dominates.
