On tap at Tapwerks. Pours a clear deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread and grain with a touch of toffee and biscuit. Flavor starts sweet with toffee and grains then mellows to a bit of a bready finish.

Hazy amberish copper, very thin head. The nose is belgianesque and dark fruity with a plum/date ester. The taste is a bit dry for my taste, but has a earthy caramel and dusty raisin tone about it. Hard to explain. Not a fan. arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2014

Taste is a mix of spice, earth, hop into a bit of grass, doughy, yeasty, bready notes with some sweet caramel, finishing sweet. blipp (9590) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Growler. Pours amber with a thin head. Malty, toasted bread, and some light sweetness. Very faint hoppy notes and just a hint of booze. Not bad. b3shine (9072) - Indiana, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent amberish copper with thin foamy off-white head. Smells solid; malty with notes of caramelized sugar. Tastes like it smells, only a little sweet(er). Average on the palate. Decent beer. RobertDale (6755) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 30, 2013
