Pours a nice reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt. Caramel, and a bit of a nutty flavor. I think this would age pretty well, it did seem a little boozy but I think that will mellow with age.

Pours with a deep amber body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s sweet and malty with a note of sherry, light butterscotch and a very subtle bitterness. Full bodied and smooth.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Poured from a 22oz bomber. Pours a deep red, with malty aromas, and big frut aroma as well. Almost an apple or pear. Soft on the mouth, light earthy hop flavor. This is a pretty good beer. Not great but pretty good. It’s too bad this isn’t just how red trolley is always made.

Some people were going gaga over this, nut i found it a plain, if oddly rewarding easy drinking big beer. No great projection of flavour - some burnt sugar, sticky toffee and a moderate to heavy bitter finish. Nothing really distinct, but enjoyable all the same.

Bottle at the hotel. Pours clear tawny with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is sweet toast and bread malt, figs, maple syrup, dates and light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, rich bread, faint hops and bitterness, light alcohol spiciness, dark fruits and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.
