3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice dark brown coloured beer with a decent sized head. Taste includes a little bit of caramel. Very nice beer for winter days!
Clear amber colored pour, with a medium beige head, and spotty lace. Aroma is mainly malt, and some hops. Taste is malt that trys to stays big through a heavy hop presence. Fairly heavy on the carbonation. Spicy hoppy finish. Solid brew, but also heavy and off-balance. Slightly boozy. drowland (9080) - Georgia, USA - NOV 13, 2017

Thanks Danny! Malty, sweet, a bit nutty and doughy. Overall, a pretty good winter warner type beer. Bill Becker (1808) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 2, 2017
From Jan 2008
I got this bottle in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John!
It pours from 12oz bottle a slightly hazy medium gold/brown with a very small head of foam that left the scene quickly. Just a ring around the glass and some spotting left after about a minute.
The smell is about equal portions of sweet malt and citrus hops.
The taste on first sips gives me a very large caramel malt flavour and some alcohol. A few more sips in and the hops take their place with both grass and grapefruit and some earthy flavour is there as well. It has a medium mouthfeel and it finishes with a healthy dose of grass. A pretty good sipper here but I think the alcohol isn't as well hidden as in other brews of similar abv. Too much warming in the throat. BuckeyeBoy (8500) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 11, 2017
12oz bottle thanks to Eric. Pours out a dark brown topped with a tan head. Nose is light roast pit fruit rich malts some nutty wood. Taste is more of the nice grain and touch of spice.

good looking beer.. brown/amber color, small foamy head. Smell is pretty malt heavy and sweet. Taste is quite sweet, yet smooth... could be a little more carbonated. This is not bad, but not great. floydslip (422) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Deep amber beer with a medium foamy khaki head. Nose of candied nuts, dough, and light caramel. Flavor is quite a bit stronger with caramel malt, brown bread, and almonds finishing with a pronounced astringent bitterness. Flavorful beer.

Beer of the Month Club selection. Clear amber with a small but solid head and spotty lace. Aromas of tea, toast, toffee and hints of leather and floral hops. Caramel malts and toffee sweetness up front offset by a hop kick that adds some bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, sticky oily mouthfeel and a sweet finish.

Pours clear light brown, big beige head. Earthy, licorice aroma. Taste is caramel, hay, spicy, hops. Surprisingly light mouthfeel, but creamy. nearbeer (5608) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 18, 2017
12 oz. bb Feb 22, 2017. Clear shiny copper-amber with nice legs supporting a thin film of foam. Mild nose has some rich caramel, light toast and a hint of apple. Flavor is toffee turning to a bit of apple and citrus, then a long wood and cardboard finish. Medium-heavy body has a pleasant low-medium carbonation and shows a bit of the abv.
