UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 My bottle (22oz) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of ’Summer Secret Santa 2008’. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with some bubbles and a large lasting foamy off-white head. Nice spicy malty aroma along with some sweetness and citrus fruit. Flavour’s not as good (it may be a touch past it’s due date but it’s hard to tell as there’s no date anywhere on the bottle), there’s a touch of sourness to it along with citrus fruit, bready malt and spices. Average bodied. Not bad, I thought it was O.K. -- I’d love to try a fresh bottle though. highibus (821) - Vail, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2010
deep copper to almost red. Small white head with really nice lacing. Aroma is not really noticable but nicely sweet. lightly chewy with lots of deep malts, a little nutty. Sweet finish with light hop bite. Not bad. yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2014

Cloudy dark amber color with small creamy head. Aroma of caramel, a bit cheesy. Sweetish and smooth mouthfeel, strong caramel flavor with a nutty accent, light Parmigiano Reggiano impression, some roasted nuts in the final. Strong bitterness.
Old tasting (it’s about 1 years old), and not impressive anyway.
Draft - Rich caramel notes. Clearish copper with a rich beige head. Sweet caramel with a bit of hop bitterness. Not bad. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle shared with blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel - courtesy of blankboy. Copper-amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of resiny hops, spice, caramel, orange zest, grapefruit - nice! Medium bodied. Flavour is quite sharp, with notes of sour citrus and grapefruit pith overpowering what seem to be some nice toffee & dark sugar notes from the malt. Seems a bit off-kilter to me - as blankboy notes, it could’ve been an old bottle. cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2009
