The appearance combines a hazyy orangeish brown color with a medium off-white head, and the aroma has caramel malts, dough yeast, and roasted malts apparent in the scent. The taste blends a mild sweetness, a slight umami, and a slight sourness, and the palate combines a soft carbonation, medium body, slick texture, and a fairly abrupt finish.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Malty with loads of caramel and a hint of dark fruits, maybe raisins. Meh, good but I was expecting better.

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Pours a ruby brown color with a quick fading off-white head. Aroma is very malty, mild earthy hops presence, light sweetness from caramel malt but well balanced. Flavor is well balanced with some light hints of peat, strong earthy hops notes and a strong, well balanced caramel and toasted malt notes. Body is perfect with the 9% hidden well by the semi-heavy body and low bubbly palate. Overall a very good beer. I like the way the brewer attacked this on the bit of a lighter, slightly dryer side of the style. The earthy presence really pops and brings the maltiness to the forefront of the flavor. For the price, this is a fantastic, flavorful beer.

Dark brown pour with caramel, toffee, and roasted malts. A little lighter bodied than I expected. But ok.

thegreenrooster (4402) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Pour is a brown with a small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel mixed with dark fruit. Flavor is again caramel with some butterscotch and raisin. Finish leaves an almost dark cherry on the tongue. Alcohol is not noticeable. This was a decent malt heavy beer.

Headbanger (3999) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2013
22oz bottle 6/25/13 (Binny’s Naperville)-46° in Tulip-Pours a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and roasted malt. Taste of caramel, toffee, and malt. This medium bodied brew hides the ABV very well. A little weak but still tasty.

3.2
Onionkid (376) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours brown with a tan head. Malty, caramel aroma. The taste is similar, a sweet beer that’s got a full, nice mouthfeel with a toffee finish. Decent, but seems a little simple, not too complex. 9% alcohol.

A very malty beer with well masked alcohol and little bitterness. Nothing unpleasant was noted and there was some caramel/sweetness to it.
