Parting gift courtesy of GT2, thanks! Extremely dark brown, medium brown head. Aroma of burnt squash and dark cocoa. Taste is oddly sour dark fruit. I like the aroma, the taste is OK, especially for a 5% beer. Tmoney99 (14854) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2011

12 oz bottle. (Martin's) Winchester, VA.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny tan head.
Strong aroma of spices, sweetness, malt, Coke, vegetables and some candies in the aroma. The flavour is... very bad... with spices, Dr Pepper, Coke, sweetness, gingerbread, mild roasty notes and some hops. Unbalanced and unpleasant.
