3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours with a frothy amber-tan colored head that is a finger thick. The beer is a clear deep amber color that shows a deep ruby color when held up to the light. The aroma is quite malty with notes of caramel and toffee up front moving to a dry lightly roasted note. Tastes like a toasty brown ale. Perhaps there is a bit of cherry like fruit character as well, but this is fairly subdued.
The beer has a medium full heft to it, but does not really coat the mouth too much. The beer is lightly sweet with notes of toffee and a light molasses. The finish is a mix of toasted malt notes, a bit of coffee, and a roast grain character. There is a combination of the sweet malt notes and the slight alcohol heat in the finish.
This beer is actually quite nice. The malt character is refreshingly unhoppy, and makes for a great sipping beer.

A little too nutty for me. Great aroma and color. First it hits the pallet with a nutty slightly hoppy taste it does have a bit of a kick so without knowing a would guess it is around 8 abv. Overall not my favorite but I would drink it again

Pours up a dark amber color, with a creamy tan head. Aroma is rich malts and caramel. Taste is sweet, with a hint of spice, liquorish and hearty. It has a nice winter feel. Some dark fruits in the flavors keep it well rounded and balanced. Great beer. jmohno (1679) - Iowa, USA - DEC 8, 2017

Can @ home. Very enjoyable stuff. A bit like a barleywine or quadrupel, but slightly more hop forward and less sticky sweet. Still quite sweet, don’t get me wrong, but not annoyingly sweet. Good stuff! Medium to full body, soft carbo. martin00sr (4515) - Haderslev, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2017
