slowrunner77 (10494) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"a little on the sweet side, surprising since the nose had a nice hoppy & malty mix. pretty good, but not great. would need a little more balance for that. worth trying, though."

j12601 (9689) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby tinged amber with a medium to large sized beige head. A touch of oxidized paper on the nose, sweet malt and a touch of a hoppy backbone. Medium bodied, very smooth. Lots of caramel and more oxidization, raisins and paper. Finishes a bit warm and boozy with more sweetness. Interesting.

DuffMan (9647) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
On tap pretty much everywhere we went in San Diego, but this rating comes from our extensive sit-down at The Local. Clear copper brown, earthy caramel aroma. Sweet caramel flavour profile, mild bitterness with a tea-leaf finish.

JorisPPattyn (9606) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 24, 2008
Draught. Served ice cold in a frosted glass... Red-brown with small yellowish rim. Malts, and very little else, seen the temperature. Roasted malts, some bitterness with slight retronasal sweetness, which continues growing warming up, pastry flavours. Medium bodied at best. Horrible presentation for a beer that isnt all that great to start with...

arminjewell (9411) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, some grassy and herbal hops into a bit of spice, yeast, slight orange as well. Taste is a mix of orange, marmalade into a bit of red fruit, some slight grass, herbal, spicy hops into a big caramel note, finishing slightly bitter.
