Bottled: Orange coloured. Hazy. Light brown coloured. Spiced, light fruity and hoppy aroma. Flavour is hoppy and fruity with some nice malty accents. Is very bitter in the end. Quite delicious beer. Thanks to BBB63 for this. deyholla (11503) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle thanks to Sarah! Poured a clear caramel amber with a tan head that lasted and laced. Aroma had a caramel note with smooth grain and an alcohol backing. Flavor was smooth with grain and had a smooth caramel note as well. There was a bit of spice as well with a bit of backing alcohol. shrubber85 (11324) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 19, 2014

Bottle... Clear, amber ale with orange highlights. Small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Citrusy, fruity aroma with a very slight pine undertone. Moderately bitter, grapefruit flavor with a solid, caramel / malt backbone. Full-bodied and ultra creamy with medium carbonation. Finishes dry and grassy. Great brew! Thanks to scraff for the bottle. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2008

Bottle thanks to Crizay I believe, from a trade a while back. Pours a clear crimson hued brown with a diminishing medium sized beige head. Aroma is soft old malt heavy with plum and caramel. Spicy with some oxidization and a bit of malt. Finishes up dry and with some big bitterness. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

clear redish amber, thin off white head leaves nice lace, light sweet carmel malt aroma with a touch of floral hops, mostly dry malt flavor with a double does of hops leading to a bitter finish, malt grows bigger as it warms and a touch of sweetness shows up, just a hint of alcohol as it approaches room temperature, never really develops any character
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Thanks to BBB63 for this one. Pours deep copper with big white head. Aroma of malt, big fruit, cognac, some hops. Tastes malty, with fruit, hops, slight spirits, and a dense, semi dry finish. Solid, and very good. Earn your red wings, then get yourself some Nosferatu to wash it all down. adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Bottle @ home, acquired in a trade. Clear burnt orange appearance with a small, light brown head. Rich toffee, sweet caramel malty, a touch spicy, lightly piney, floral hoppy aroma. Spicy, piney hoppy flavor, mildly citrusy, rich caramel/toffee flavor. Thick, lightly syrupy, spicy, toffee finish. Pretty cool beer. BVery (10327) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Tap. Orange pour with a big foamy beige head. Smells like pepper. Taste is malt and more pepper. Interesting, but not quite doing it for me.
