Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Bottle. A: Dark amber color with an off-white head. N: Caramel, toffee, cracker, minerality, honey, peppercorn, some corn and plenty of earthiness. T: Sweet and very lightly bitter M: Light body, soft, creamy carbonation, no alcohol. O: A sweet beer with some nice complexity given how light it is. Could drink a few of these during the holiday season.

colui72 (1058) - HONG KONG - NOV 14, 2015
Pours bright amber with a creamy thin head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is a bit plain, very British sweet malts with a dry finish. Ok ale.

tightslice (1356) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is vanilla and herbed soupy something. Some kind of spiced fruit chicken pot pie. Is it a savory meal? Is it a dessert? Interesting, but a bit of a sloppy mess.

njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Poured into pint glass a nice Amber with a just off white head. Aroma is fruity and malty. Taste is malt heavy with some hops coming through in the finish. Not much linger to it. A bit thin for a winter beer.

BrewMaster0912 (49) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Has a sweet light smell, almost smells a little like vanilla. Comes out a dark amber color with a creamy colored foamy head. Doesn’t taste like it smells, has a strong hop taste to it and leave a very dry and nasty aftertaste.

Bork (455) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Sturdy but refreshing. Heavily malty body with a whole lot of fruits and a pleasant bitter finish. Quality winter brew.

3.8
jamaty (2186) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 9, 2015
Ambar entre anaranjada y marrón. Clara aunque ligeramente brumosa. 1 dedo de espuma ligeramente ocre. Fuerte aroma a azucar tostada y malta. Excelente cuerpo y textura. Y gran sabor. Buen equilibrio entre dulce caramelo y amargo final. Ligero calorcito, mayor que en cervezas de más graduación. Para saborear lentamente, trago a trago. Excelente.

swillguzzler99 (189) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2015
From a 550mL bottle. Pours a honey copper with nice carbonation but minimal head. Bitter nose. Taste is a slight malt/bitter hops that dissipates and finishes a bit weak. Watery mouth feel. An OK beer.

2.3
huineman (719) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 10, 2015
Pours amber with greenish-white head. Low aroma of peach, Seville orange, cookie. Soft and watery. Low bitterness. Doesn’t linger long.
