Keg at Ginger Man, Plano. Cloudy deep mahogany colour, creamy head. Looking delicious! Caramel nose with some caramelized sugar. Sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Creme Brulee with notes of pine and pears, soothing spun sugar. Toffee and pine in a mid bitter finish with some husk. Rich and harmonious, perhaps cut down a tad on the caramel? Or not. It’s tasty as is.

Cloudy dark amber color. Nice aroma, with some malt, roasted malt, caramel, toffee. Good body structure, with a good mix of malt and caramel. Enough bitterness, but it would really need a more aromatic hopping. Anyway, the most interesting here.

RIch sweet buttery vanilla aroma. Super-sugary. Dark, tight head. Classic sweet sugary bourbon barrel aged taste. Sugared up to the max, and vanilla-ey. Lacking in balance. A bit slick. Certainly drinkable though.
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a rich malt and chocolate with a bready finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A good English strong ale from Rahr. bhensonb (16146) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Bottle from ericandersnavy. The white tape guy! Thanks a bunch. Pours damn near opaque brown with a foamy 4-finger beige head. Whoa - aroma of dark malt and cinnamon sticks (we just got a bunch of those). Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is dark malt, astringent cinnamon bark thing, coffee, maybe chocolate. Yeh, I think chocolate. The head is clinging all over the tulip glass. I’ll also buy nutty. But muted nutty. Finishes dry, but some malt sweet insists on hanging around. Then everything goes creamy. Creamed coffee aspects. Enjoying the heck out of this. Merry Xmas guys. I’m with Fratto on this one. Tmoney99 (15229) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark brown color with medium tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy toasted dark malt and dark fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is an interesting brew.
