Bottle purchased at Liquor Box in East Moline. Deep brown body, like strong iced tea with a light yellowish khaki head. The aroma is cellar and tofffee. There is also a note of old leather. The taste is lots of caramel with some light milk chocolate. There is also some cantalope in the clean finish. Very soft carbonation. Nicely made.

Clear red little head. Dark caramel malt, raisin with a hint of banana and hops in the aroma. Sweet, malty melaniodian flavor. Little in the way of hops or bitterness in the flavor. Just enough bitterness to keep it from being cloying. Huge body. Clean finish. Good. dwyerpg (6286) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 29, 2008

(on bottle) Clear dark red/brown, small, white head. Distinct aroma, very plesant; sweet tobacco, prunes, vanilla, freshcut wood, and at least an 89% chocolate. Even some wineaspects, as in Merlot. Perkyfresh carbonation, soft dark malt taste, with more vanillapod and red peppercorns. Mellows nicely out, pure pleasure. I just love it when under(dogs)ferments, can give such a complex experience. bhensonb (15498) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Bottle. Sweet fruity caramel nose. Dark brown color with ruby hilites, with a beige head. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation. Lots of flavor. Caramel, bread, pitted fruits, like cherry. Finish is dark, light sweet with fruit notes. Not particularly bitter at all. The fruitiness makes it very pleasant to drink. DocLock (10836) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2007
