Pours a deep amber brown with white foam head. Aroma of dark fruit, candi sugar, caramel, earthiness, and dough. Sweet citrus caramel taste with leathery caramel malt hints on the finish. A creamy, medium body, rugged brown ale that serves its purpose. PhatB420 (841) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2013
12oz into a harpoon leviathan glass as my first brew on NYE 2013. Pour is straigh forward with a fast foaming head that dissapears. Color is dark brown and amber rust. Aroma is sweet malts, cherry, plum, rasin, and musty brown ale. Taste is quite reminiscant of a barely wine, dark musty rasin and grape like flavors, mixed berry, oh the head is gone, sweet malt based presense is rampant, strong abv is noticeable but not deterring. Aftertaste is sweet, solid and strong with malts and fruits, mostly cherry. This one grows on you, not bad for the Shed. jeremytoni (3082) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2013
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste. jgb9348 (6433) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Rich deep hazy brown and copper coloured body with a thick, two centimetre tall deep tan and light brown head. Aroma of rich caramel, alcohol, hazlenuts, pecans, earth, peat and quite a bit of fruit sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Rich malty flavour with a good caramel profile, some nuts and earth and a hint of herbal spices with some allspice and nutmeg thrown in. Aftertaste shows some rich pit fruit sweetness and an alcohol vibe, but not in an overwhelming way - just noticeable. Overall,a solid beer that was better that I was expecting, and not a bad drink for a chilly evening. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Whole Foods (Foggy Bottom) in Washington, DC on 25-October-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home here in Washington on 16-December-2013. boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Draft at beer fest. Pours hazy reddish brown with a medium sized white head. The aroma has sugar and some fruity notes. The taste is sweet, sugar, and some plums and raisin.

Smells of malt, some roasted with a bit of a coffee smell in there as well. Taste is malty with a bitter middle and a sweet finish. Has a bit of a sloppy palate, reminiscent of a home brew made with malt extract. Light carbonation. Pretty full flavored. Overall a good beer. Wouldn't buy for home but would have after a day of snowboarding.

Pours opaque brown with amber highlights. Decent head retention. Easy drinking with a complex, malty mouthfeel. Finishes clean. Good brew. N3lson1 (1005) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Decent beer, complex malt flavor, pours dark brown in color. Worth a try. Decent looking head. gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Not that high of expectations but i gave it a go. Good alcohol content and pretty drinkable for 7.4 but it was very malty and basic with a pretty bland flavor profile.
