Bottled (backlog). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some grains, a bit of alcohol as well as a slight bit of floral notes. Flavour is caramel, some floral notes as well as some mild alcohol to it. Balanced, but nothing all too special. Forgy (12) - - AUG 1, 2015
Looks good. Pours clear orange/amber, however it does the scent of a poor home brewed ale. And not surprisingly, it has a acetaldehyde after-taste. Hop presence lacking and syrupy malt mouthfeel. Not a particularly tasty strong ale. Would not buy again.

Pours a nice Amber/dark copper color. Aroma of sweet malts and faint hops. Taste is a mouthful of malts. Some floral notes from the hops. It's an ok strong ale. bigericsports (84) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 11, 2015
From bottle to pint glass, pours a pale copper with almost no head. Sweet malty aroma, hint of blackcurrants and dark fruits, rounds out with strong yeast and spicy hops. Dry and moderate bitter finish. penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours clear orange-amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is lots of caramel, bread, vague soft fruitiness, cracker, and alcohol. Taste is bread, caramel, alcohol, yeast, a bit earthy, and medium bitterness. Medium body, finishes dry. Alcohol is a little harsh, not a lot of complexity.

Looks good in the glass, smells really sweet. The taste is sweet and malty, then dry and strong. I think $11 for the six was a bit on the high side, but what’s a coupla two tree bucks if it gets you where you wanna go. I will put this into the new category of beer I just made up, micro-brew malt liquor. As long as I don’t have a headache in the morning, I’ll consider this a solid purchase, but make it a buck or two cheaper so I can get a lottery ticket, and it’s a "rock" solid purchase. achtungpv (264) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Dry, earthy hops. Burnt caramel up front. Frothy think mouth feel. It's decent but I won't revisit.

Aroma: toasted malt and dark fruit. Raisins and caramel
Appear: reddish copper. White head. No lacing
Taste: sweet toffee in the front. Bitter on the back. Cluster hops come through at the finish.
Palate: medium bodied. A bit cloying. Over carbonated.

Pours amber with a thin head. Aroma is malty with some fruity notes. Taste mirrors the smell. Nice mild bitterness with a dry finish. Alcohol is well masked. Overall a fairly decent offering. Not my favorite style but good.
