From a bottle at the brewery, pretty sweet and strong at 9%, little carbonation. Pretty malty and some caramel notes, not the best I have had but not bad either

Chris brought me this one from a trip to Utah. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark brown color with orange highlights and a large foamy tan head that lingered left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, malty and vegetal with sharp dark fruit. The flavor was sharp dark fruits, red wine, vegetal malts and alcohol. Long finish. Medium body. Interesting.

sonnycheeba (5656) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours mostly clear cola brown. Aroma is figs, raisins, toasted and caramel malts, and some faint spicy and woody notes. Flavor is rich and malty with a lot of lager yeast and dark fruit esters before quickly drying out to a slightly spicy, boozy finish. Medium body.

For a dark beer it drinks fairly smooth, Plenty of caramel malty flavors not hoppy or bitter. A bit heavy on the palate kind of lingers.

I was excited about this beer because i love Roosters Honey Wheat. I bought it after work and threw it in the freezer when I got home,(as in Utah liquor stores they dont keep beer cold). I got it out in 35 minutes and poured it into my favorite beer mug. Even with a tilted pour the whole pour turned to head. Puzzled I tool a pull from the bottle which immediately turned to foam and came frothing out of my mouth and I was unable to swallow as there was no liquid. I waited 20 minutes and the head never settled into beer. I cant even believe that they thought this beer was ready to market. Very disappointed.

Overall satisfying. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and slight coffee. Pours brown with frothy tan head. Malty, balanced, but maybe slightly too hoppy. Medium/full body, creamy, with malt leading to slightly bitter finish.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Red-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has one dark fruit and circus peanut notes. The flavor is similar with a lot of circus peanuts, butter, toffee and grapes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Sweet, molasses aroma. A little raisin-like dark fruit. Tart flavor; not terrible, but strange and definitely "unexpected". Even stranger that I got none of it in the aroma. Theres also the malt sweetness and fruit, but theyre mostly over-powered. A little solvent alcohol in there, too.

I dont know if this is infected or what. Need to try again.

(500ml bottle) Pours a clear copper body with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel, raisins, and plum. Flavor of raisins, caramel, cocoa, nuts, and grain.
