12 oz can bought in NH. Clear dark amber color with a large beige head and great retention. Great lacing. Hoppy aroma. Slick, flat mouthfeel. Faint caramel flavor up front followed by a medicinal hoppy finish. Not a fan. 7.5 ABV is well hidden at least. jb (3454) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2017
This was true to style and very enjoyable. Clear copper. Sticky boozy and malty all in balance. shawnmurphy (673) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - MAY 3, 2017

1,000th US rating! Pours a coppery brown from a tap. Nice caramel and whole grain bread aroma, similar flavor, nice and crisp. Good beer. McSalina (1) - Exeter, Alabama, USA - MAR 15, 2017 does not count
A malty sweet alt beer. You would never know it’s a 7.5% beer. An impressive clean finish.

From the can dated 11/29/16 - Batch 65. It is nice to look at with its reddish-amber, heady pour. The aroma has this weird mashed buttered vegetable character with some caramel malts underneath. But frankly it smells like it was a home brew that was not ready for bottling. Medium body. I get the same olive oil maltiness in the taste. Nothing sweet but a little toastiness. I’m thinking that Batch 65 was not as good as the batches that earlier RB members got to try. Maybe I need to give it another chance. mcox90 (2161) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 5, 2017
4 oz. sample @ The Thirsty Moose-Manchester. Pours a deep, clear copper with a thin white lasting head. Dark fruits and caramel malt on the aroma. Taste leans to sweetness with the caramel malt leading the way followed by a balancing earthy hop bite. Medium bodied. Nice beer! snoworsummer (6285) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2016

Tap at brewery. Pours clear copper. Aroma is pale, toasted, and caramel malts along with some floral hops, faint spice, and faint woodiness. Flavor is malt forward with soft caramel sweetness, light hops, and faint yeast character. Medium body. tfontana (1185) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Keg pour into taster cup at NH Brewfest. Appearance is dark gold/amber, with 1/2 finger-width of head, decent retention, small amount of lacing, no sparkle. Aroma is malty, yeast. Taste is sweet and strong malts--toward tripel/quadrupel territory--but nice with some mild fruity esters. Palate is medium bodied with average texture, average carbonation and sweet finish. Overall, quite good. A little bit tough rating the aroma and taste with the food tents nearby.
