onceblind (10862) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2012
Hazy dark deep ruby brown, with a small light khaki head. Nose of earthy toffee, syrupy malt grains, raisin, and a little brown sugar. Flavor was nice and dark with a light spicy bitterness not unlike nutmeg and mulling spices, but it doesn’t taste like a winter warmer in that way...just a mild bitterness akin to it. Most of the flavor is dominated by a syrupy dark malt sweetness, with some rye bread, molasses, earthy toffee, and a hint of raisin.

Bottle. Mahogany coloured with an off-white foam. Aromas are rye bread with weetabix. Lightly nutty with grain. Flavours are grain with burnt toffee and cola. Bitter hops with a warming finish. Simple yet decent.

It’s hazy, dark, red amber with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt and light fruit – soft and mild. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and notes of malt, light spice and light fruit. It’s mild and easy to drink.

JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2011
Deep amber brown pour. The aroma is softly spicy and peppery. A little bit of light mintiness with a bit of soft bready character. A little bit of soft sweetness and a touch of pepper and clove as well. A bit of fruitiness on the back of the palate. A touch of white pepper and some nice estery fruitiness on the back of the palate. A little bit of soft rye character that ties it together quite nicely.
