brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 4, 2010
A: The pour is a clear, dark amber color with a small off-white head, leaving some mild lacing. S: A lot of sweet caramel malt along with some brown sugar. A mild citrus aroma helps to cut through the sweetness. T: Despite a very sugary nose, the sweetness was fairly restrained. The caramel and brown sugar come through, but so do some nice citrus and fruit flavors. The hops don’t really provide any bitterness here, which I could have used a touch of. M: The body is medium to full with a moderate level of carbonation. D: A touch more bitterness and this one would have been a lot better. It was still good as it is, but seemed to be missing something.

slowrunner77 (12043) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 5, 2014
poured dark ruby/mahagony-purty beer!aroma is complex and sweet with a hint of apple(?). the flavor is unique and can maybe be closest compared to an english barleywine, but actually better than most i’ve had. full bodied without being thick or cloying. if ths were bottled, i’d be searching it out. the flavor is truly special." ironically bottles not quite the same. 4.2 tap, 3.8-9 bottle
