Bottle shared by a friend. Clear reddish brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma of caramel, plum, light peat and some fruit. Malty and caramelly flavor with booze and some peat before a semi-sweet and boozy finish. SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Clear, very dark brown body with garnet highlights under a tan head.
Malty, molasses aroma.
Sweet malty flavor that follows the aroma.
Full bodied smooth. skoisirius (1909) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 21, 2013

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Dark amber with a tan head. Aroma is full of sweet malt, peat malt and dark fruit. Flavor is dark fruit with some nice toffee notes. There is also some peaty smoke as well as a good bit of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. michaelinwa (656) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Had my eye on this one for quite a while, despite mediocre ratings. Have not been impressed with the regular version of this beer. Pours medium brown, with a decent head, and an unimpressive aroma of malt with heavy metallic notes...not terribly inviting. Taste is big malt, moderately sweet, with straw, and unfortunately that odd sort of cardboard taste that occasionally shows up in beer. All flavor linger well into the finish. Overall, it’s ok, quite drinkable, but a bit too odd to really work for me.

Bottle... Clear copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is of caramel, toasted nuts and minerals. Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation. The flavor is a malty-sweet mishmash of toffee, caramel and cotton candy, followed by a whisper of lactic acid. Finishes tangy and moderately sweet. There may be the dawn of an infection here.

Bottle shared by Tony. Murky brown pour with an off white head. Sweet cola aromas. Really effervescent with rum, cola, and raw oak notes. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - SEP 20, 2012
First beer I ever really liked. dark, strong, malty. Essential not to drink it too cold.

Taking the ridiculously dumb name into account, this is still a good beer. Dark mahogany with a thin white head. The oak influences the nose with loads to tobacco leaf and a hint of vanilla. Chocolate and caramel malty flavors dominate the palate, and like a good wee heavy, the mouthfeel balances the sweetness. luttonm (6448) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle. Sweet, smoky malt. Lactic-cheese. Smooth, woody malts. Aging is a nice twist on this. Dark toasted brown. Ok
