Draft at Pottstown. Hazy brown pour with minimal head. Nose is caramel malt, nuts, hops. Tastes rich, like an old ale with more molasses and caramel flavor. tgncc (3129) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2014
At the 2014 Goat Races. Odd beer for the style. Nutty, toasted malt, fruity. Deep amber/brown, off white head. The finish is sweet, spicy, piney. Medium to medium/thick in body. Decent, but a tad odd. ganache (5852) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Tap at the goat races, inside the pub. Deep brown, opaque and hazy from yeast, red highlights and mild tan head lacing, nose is sweet and full of cherry and red fruit, light medium body in the mouth with strong alcohol but no burn; eventually warms the chest a bit. Dark malt and faint grapiness toward the end, no lasting bitterness, mild sweetness. Brown sugar and toffee. Nice. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013

From notes (thanks Mike for reminding me I never entered this one!). Drank in June courtesy of weeare138. Poured a reddish / brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruits, and brown sugar. Tastes of caramel, dark fruits, and nuttiness. Alcohol burn in the finish. weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Appears a dark, copper toned amber with a small, off-white head that slowly fades into a mild cap and collar. Spotty lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of freshly boiled malt, brown sugar, maple sugar, caramel, and mild amounts of grapes.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a light grassiness, and spiciness, along with malt, black grapes, and molasses.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, sweet, syrupy, malty, with a dry spiciness in the finish. The abv is evident in this one.
