Pours with a redish brown hue with a white head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma is of dried fruit - mainly prunes and raisins, nuts. Flavor is malty, musky, and has a lot of toffee in the end note. Couldnt feel that much carbonation weirdly enough. Interesting tasting beer - i dont like the muskiness and maltiness of it though.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2010
aroma is meaty and caramel. Appearance= is super fizzy, dirty brown cola color. Flavor is of olives, light malt, slight smoke. Kind of nasty- couldnt finish it. Bought at the Hotel front desk.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2010
Ill have to be generous on this one given the tasting circumstances. Poured from a truck-side tap in Disneyland (California Adventures Park) into a green plastic cup and costing almost eight dollars. Difficult to discern the color through the neon yellow cup but i assume it was red and clear, no head present. Aroma was pleasant caramel and dried dark red fruits. Minimal hop bite, caramel and light fruit dominates to flavor. Body is relatively light with carbonation that is soft and smoothly effervescent. Ill have to try this again in the proper glassware.

Pyobon (1376) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2010
Draught. Reddish brown, no head. Subtle caramel aroma with hint of seaweed. Light body and carbonation. Flavour is caramel with some fruit and no bitterness. Overall a fine drinkable but unexceptional beer.

brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: The pour from bottle to pint glass is a clear, amber color with a fluffy off-white foam. S: Caramel, sweet malt, and a slight bit of roasted malt. Not all that much going on in the nose. T: This is a very sweet beer. Too sweet for my taste. The flavor is very caramelly, with a fair amount of malt flavor coming through as well. Little to no hops, unfortunately, as this beer could really use it. M: The beer doesnt feel too terrible on the tongue. A light-medium body and moderate carbonation. D: The beer itself is not terrible. It is a bit too sweet for me, but other than that, its not awful. The flavors that are there arent bad, its just not necessarily my cup of tea.

On tap at my friends house (thanks Hans). Pours red with a thin off white head. Caramel and toffee in the aroma and flavor. Sweet brew and very easy to drink.

On tap at Wings and Things. I was pleasantly surprised with this beer. It tastes a little bit like Fat Tire.. only better. Dark red color, thin head. Great taste. Little bit sweet, slight bitterness. Carbonation seemed just right for this beer. Very well balanced. Give it a shot!

This dark tea colored pour had some lacing and white head from the tap. Earthy aromas with a touch of sweetness and caramel. Slight bitterness matched very well with pizza.

Glass. Pours a dark mohogany. With a very shortlived biege 1/8 inch head. Didnt draw much for aroma, given the smokey atmosphere.Palate is medium. Flows good. With 17 IBUs, not very bitter. Or as hoppy as i like, usually. Taste is of caramel malts, slight alcohol presence, with a sweet finish. Over all a good, enjoyable beer.

Bottle: Poured an dark amber color with a little head. The aroma was sweet malts. The flavor were dark fruits, sweet malts and a thicker than normal feel in the mouth, for an amber ale. Overall, this beer was flavorful and enjoyable to drink.
