Reviewed from notes. She pours a nice dark brown colored body with a big beautiful one inch white foamy head that wants to spill over the pint glass no matter how careful you try to pour it, decent lacing. The smell has some dominating pale malts and the hops remain in the background for the most part. The taste has the previously mentioned flavors with darker malts coming through, slight yeastiness. On the palate, she sits about a medium to heavy, borderline sessionable, noticeable coating of the tongue, sticky malty aftertaste and finish. Overall, good for the style and good for me, I would come back to this if it was in my distro.

Pours a hazy copper with an average head. Aroma of sweet toasted malts and caramel. Flavor has caramel, sweet breads, and fruits dipped in alcohol. I really enjoyed this brew. ROBC3366 (148) - north reading, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Pours a dark mahogany color with a white head. Smells of biscuity malt and tastes chocolate fruit up front and hoppy finish

Clear dark mahogany with a big head that slowly drops to a head cover, mottled streaks of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt and medium hops - coast to coast! Both sides contribute their strengths the entire way, even through the lingering finish. A solid offering from Geary’s, maybe their best. Recommended.

Bière achetée dans le Maine, dans une caisse mixte de dégustation. Couleur roux foncé qui tire vers le brun, mousse correcte, beige. 7% d’alcool, bien que ce ne soit pas inscrit sur la bouteille. Nez intéressant de sucre d’orge, de gomme baloune et de houblon. En bouche, on dénote d’abord une belle présence. Sucre bien balancé, avec une touche houblonnée bien calibrée elle aussi. Un tantinet liquoreuse, cette bière n’a rien à voir avec les bières légères américaines qu’on boit souvent aux États-Unis. Belle surprise. Le goût de sucre d’orge se mêle parfaitement aux notes d’alcool. Cela descend très bien. Décidément un bon petit produit qu’on se doit de verser dans un verre, d’ailleurs! Cheers!

Not much to smell, almost no aromas. Color is a medium red - brown. Darker than I expected but I complements the taste. Intial flavor is toasted biscuit. The more I drink the hops start making an appearance. A Malty start with a nice hoppy finish. OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours a clear dark amber. 1.5 finger head that sinks down to a nice ceiling.
S - Toffee malt, slight spice, alcohol vapors, fruity-mostly grapes.
T - Roasted toffee malt, nutty gingerbread spices, sharp citrus, apples, dates, and butterscotch. All this is surrounded with with quite a bit of grassy lemon hop bitterness. Finishes dry.
M - Medium to full bodied and creamy.
The rich fruity malt is masterfully balanced by the grassy hops. A very complex brew that is a joy to drink.

On tap at Great Lost Bear Portland, Maine. Nice aroma and taste was balanced. A little hot on alcohal but plesent on palate to warm me on a cold night in Portland. crossovert (12937) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Dark clear amber pour with a frothy off-white head. Smells as traditional as any English ale so well done there. Dark fruits, musty yeast, english hops in the nose. Flavor is mild and pleasant. Typical savory english yeast flavor that im not a huge fan of but it is done properly.
