Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Chocolate, roast, and a touch of smoke in the nose. Deep brown with a very small cream colored cap. Balanced without any distinct hop bitterness. Full bodied with a bittersweet finish.

KevinReddirt (97) - Midland, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Sometimes it just does not connect.The 12 oz. bottle gave up a dark, almost black, liquid with a head that has to be coaxed with the pour. How do I describe the nose, medicinal, perhaps. An improvement with the taste, but only so much. Malt heavy, an astringent edge, a glimmer of sweetness following. Just not my style, Just not my beer.

Livendadream (227) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 14, 2016
Btl pours a dark brown color with a dense soft, off white head that hangs around leaving spots of lace on glass. Aromas of dark bread,grain,herbal hops, and whiff of alcohol. Tastes of sweet caramel, dates,malt and spicy hops. Full body, nice carbonation, slick, smooth mouthfeel and a sweet-spicy finish. This beer has a really comfortable taste. It is very easy to drink with nice homely flavors. It’s a little sweet but the hops and alcohol balance it out nicely. It is simple yet elegant. Great winter warmer!

It pours brown with a brown head. It has a very deep rich malt aroma. There are flavors highlight by toast with some dark fruit. The flavors are sweet, rich and clean They feature toast, malts, and hints of dark fruits. It has a full body that is smooth with some alcohol warming. Overall this is a highly malted beer with little hops, but clean and flavorful.

Tap at Mader’s. Very dark with no head. Smells like dark raisin bread, but dry, and maybe a little hint of chocolate. Flavor follows.

ordybill (1566) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark copper color with a small tan head. The aroma is malt and caramel. The taste is an excellent match to the aroma with a small amount of hops. An excellent beer.

There was a time I drank this beer with my old pal Chris Blado, god rest his wisconsin soul. We were playing music in the old Atlatl studio, thats a place of worship for you yahoo numbskulls who don’t know an ant eater from an aardvark. I remember enjoying myself and then really enjoying myself. Feeling very drunk. This sweet beer, malty, smooth, pantry full of caramel, sneaks up on you. With a APV of almost 8% a couple of these will put petite men, like Chris and I, under the table fast.

Sweet fruity aroma, dark fruits. Rich maltiness too. Tastes extremely malty, but the palate is quite light. Goes down remarkably easily. Malts almost kvassy. A malt overload - nicey-nice!

Nothing spectacular but a good decent beer. ABV is 7.6% which is good. Although I prefer an 8.0% or higher. Nevertheless, has a good taste to it.

Sits great on the tongue. Nice dark color with a roasted flavor. It’s fairly high in alcohol so that never hurts, right?
