(12oz bottle thanks to cavie) Pours a dark amber with decent head and good lacing. Not much in the nose but there are some sweet malts and alcohol. The taste surprisingly shows the alcohol as well with brown-ale like malt profile. Rosebud butternuts (2408) - Denton, Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2009

Ruby color. Light aroma but has a dark feel. Sweet tones on the nose. Smooth flavor with a decent finish. Not over the top by any means. A bit dry on the finish. esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Crystal clear copper with a thin tan head that recedes quickly into a thin layer. Aroma of toffee, caramel, a bit of dark fruits and roasted malt. Taste of dark fruit, toffee, bubblegum, mild roasted malt and light sugar and spice. Finishes up pretty clean, perhaps a touch dry, with some mild caramel. Better than I expected.

Appearance: Pours a clear, brilliant, garnet-hued body with a smallish, whitish head.
Smell: Initially, an aroma of simple syrup marinated plums -- skins and all. Eventually, notes of toasted dark bread and bit of roast dosed with a few drops of honey liqueur.
Taste: Toasted pumpernickel bread lightly brushed with sweet treacle and served alongside a small handful of plums and currants, which provide a bit of tart fruitiness. Light touch of roast. Lightly earthy hops with a medium-low amount of bitterness. A pinch of brown sugar joins the mix later on. Very light hints of the alcohol within. Relatively dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Very, very slight stickiness to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: So-so. It’s not a 44-person water skiing pyramid, but, when considering the rest of Point’s offerings, it’s not half bad! ZR2Blazer (87) - Christiansburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Bottle pours dark brown with a 2 finger tan head. Very malty with a bitter aftertaste. Just not a fan of they style I suppose, I did not like this one at all. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2009
