marcus (9393) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 8, 2011
On tap at Monks Kettle. Pours light brown with a decent beige head and a, guess what, burnt taost aroma. There is a hearty smoked malt flavor that is nutty and bread-like with a pleasantly bitter hop finish.

joeneugs (6060) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 31, 2010
On tap at the Trappist in Oakland. It pours reddish brown with a thin but dense cream colored head. The aroma is slightly fruity with some caramel and a nice dry malt character. The flavor is really very good with caramel and toasted malt and a dry, bitter finish. Hard to believe this is a malt liquor by style. A nice alternative to the myriad of sweet, spicy winter warmers out there this time of year.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2010
Tap at Toronado. Deep amber-red pour. The nose is softly sweet with a touch of dark chewy, caramel. Chewy and lightly malty with a really chewy sweetish finish. Clean and malty with a touch of herbal hoppiness to balance it off. Sort of a hoppy doppelbock.

Three year old aged Toast on tap. Ive never had this beer fresh, so I cant give a good comparison. On that topic, I would love to cure that error in my experiences. I found this aged version to be delicate and complex. The caramel malt flavor is sublime, incredible bready notes, lightly toasted (of course), mix with lingering floral hops. The feel was silky smooth and light. The beer was relatively light in color with a good head and lacing. I tried to let it warm up a bit because it was served colder than I would have preferred. It really just had one of the most tantalizing and light sweet flavor profiles that Ive ever tasted. Excellent beer that I will be on the lookout for from now on.

On tap at Zeitgeist in SF. My last beer of 2009, and a good one. The best malt liquor ever! Pours a clear dark amber-brown color with a nice lasting off-white head. Aroma is, well, toast, along with caramel, chocolate, and hops. Flavor is caramel malt, toasted malt, toast, spices, chocolate, and some citrusy and floral hops. Really tasty. Medium body with a surprisingly smooth mouthfeel and nice mildly bitter finish. Very interesting and good beer.
