12 oz bottle courtesy of maltomeal. Pours a clear copper color with a large fizzy beige head. The aroma is bready and caramel malt with hints of spice and herbal hops. The flavor is bready, caramel malts, lightly spicy, with more fruit than the nose indicated. Hops are mildly spicy and earthy. Drier finish, medium bodied with good balance. I get increasing warmth from this beer without ever showing any alcohol.

Bottle from Mar. Good shit! Amber pour with a light head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, spices and a tad fruity. Flavor is smooth as hell with some nice spices, a slight alcohol warmth and some great malt flavors. Nice holiday brew. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

On tap at Russo’s Pizza on hwy 290 @ West Rd, Houston. Clear orange amber, thin laceful head. Nice malty aroma of pale malt, nice chewy cereal grains, a tad bit of honey and dark fruit. Taste was much the same to my delight. Nice chewy cereal malt, a bit of honey, raisin, subtle winter spice tones, pretty sweet but adequately balanced, finished dark fruity cereal grainy. Nicely done.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of Cavie. Thanks again, Travis! Dark amber orange appearance with a small cream colored head. Somewhat spicy, organic hoppy, caramel malty nose. Moderate caramel/toffee malty, lightly boozy, organic hoppy, somewhat spicy flavor. Pretty nice smooth beer though there is a little bit of a booze burn on the finish. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 15, 2009
