rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Mike/Swoopjones @ Cole’s. Copper body, light tan head. Nose is vaguely fecal with roasty malt and crisp hoppiness. Flavor is roasty malt, caramel, a hint of cocoa. Hops come out as does roast in the finish but I can’t get past that nose.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle in trade from ROBORB. Thanks dude! Pours clear and amber with a beige head. Smell is nutty, fruity and malty. Taste is nutty, with a date like sweetness, some dustiness and toasty and tartness as well. Medium to full body with soft to medium carbonation. Pretty good for the style, I thought.

dchmela (3064) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Pours a nice amber color with a thin tan head. Good caramel malt aroma. Taste is smooth with a sweet malt, caramel, toasted malt taste. Easy drinking beer that went down way too fast.

jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2009
12oz bottle-pours a light tan head and amber color. Aroma is light/medium malt-some almost caramel, medium fruit, slight musty. Taste is medium malt-caramel/toffee, secondary spice/herbal hops, some wood. Could be an Oktoberfest or Bock style lager. Thanks decaturstevo for picking this out.

3.5
SpringsLicker (3639) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2009
Bottle Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Deep amber/orange body that supports a long lasting off-white head. Light malt aroma. Toasty. A light bitterness on the front end quickly fades to a velvety dryness. Good body.

3.2
GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 26, 2008
12oz bottle from nearbeer. Thanks. The aroma was of hay, a dash of brown sugar, toffee, and subdued noble hops. Poured a clear dark orange color. The head was short, white, and reduced quickly to a thin film. Some tattered lace was left behind. Medium bodied and delicately sweet. Spicy, earthy malts dominated the flavor; akin to a mix of fall leaves, toffee, and molasses. Some fleshy and dark fruit flavors emerged at the end. Not bad. Good spring beer.

3.6
durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Bottle from Sam’s. Given the name, I was surprised to see the copper/amber pour coming out of the bottle. Pleasantly surprised, I might add. Malty nose. A bit of floral hops. Sweet notes of caramel and toffee. Toasty. Similar on the palate. Quite drinkable. Another solid offering from this brewery.
