BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Bottle that I shared at the Free the Hops monthly chapter meeting in Huntsville. Poured ruby with an off-white head that left good lace. Aromas of sweet malts, light fruit in the background and vanilla. The flavor found fruit (mainly cherries), milk chocolate, vanilla and spice. Medium body, dry, but sweet. Nice!

Bottle pours clear red color with off white head. Aroma has caramel malt and subtle spices. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is more subtle malt and spice. Just an average brew.

Palidor19 (3171) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2009
at first sip it brings a vast assortment of dark flavor with lots of hazelnut, maple syrup and caramel. it sort of drags out at the end. still beer goes all the way with a bit of astringent at the finish.

forsides (118) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2009
clear brown/copper with small head. notes of vanilla, toffee, caramel. flavor is has very english/scottish ale characteristics. smooth toffee and caramel malt flavors, with the perfect amount of piney hops at the finish to balance it out.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Draft at redlight redlight. Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Lots of nutmeg in the nose. Hints of cinnamon. Nice warm, wintry, coffee-cake aroma. The flavor exhibits these notes fairly well although a lot of malt comes through and covers some of the subtler layers. All said and done, it hits the spot on a cold winter night.

Pailhead (6525) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma of caramel, vanilla. roasted nuts, fruit, and light spices. Pours a dark transparent copper with a small soapy head that quickly fades to a ring. Quick nuttiness and caramel up front is quickly covered up by a vanilla, milk chocolate, butterscotch, and slight ginger finish. Pretty tastey, but probably couldnt drink more than 12oz or so without it wearing on me.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Dark rudy brown pour. Smelled like cola - sweet malty and some prunish fruits and spices. Sweeter malty flavors, medium fruits, and a fair bit of spice for flavors. A touch of clove too.

vyvvy (6056) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 26, 2006
Thanks to tannertavernboys for sharing. Pours a dark garnet with a minor amount of head. The aroma is spicy with cinnamon and maybe something else. There is also a rich carny sugar aspect that is present, but not overbearing. The beer is medium bodied with light carbonation - could be due to a bit of aging. Interesting taste to the beer, very unique. There are elements of cherry pie filling, but quite dry - bits of caramel - spiciness (cinnamon, ginger, others?). The finish has some hops to it, they have an dusty / earthy taste to them. An interesting beer Id like to try again.

Terminus (3626) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 1, 2006
22oz bomber-thanks to Aracauna for sending me this months ago. ruby red hue with a soaphy off-white head. sweet, lightly floral hop note with nice spices-cinnamon and nutmeg come to mind. some berry notes come out as well as earthy hops, caramel and toasted malt. lots of spice on the flavors along with some toasted malt notes. some resembelence of a ginger bread cookie! body verges on flimsy, but does a good job distributing the flavors around. Finish is heavily spicy and tingles the toungue. not a bad and unique beer.
