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.

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 (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2009

Pour is a cola looking brown with a small tan head. Aroma has some spice and brown sugar with a touch of dark fruit. Flavor is pretty much the same some dark fruit, candi sugar and molasses. A nice earthyness is left on the tounge after the swallow. This is by far one of the better if not the best beers this brewer makes.
