Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Poured from tap to glass amber reddish hue with white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is pine, cereal, caramel. Mouthfeel is nice with a lighter body and moderate carbonation. Taste is clean and dry with a bitter following and slight CO2 in the finish. Overall this is a nice brew Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark red color with a nice tan head. Floral and citrus hop aroma with light malts. Flavor is up front citrus hoppiness with some raisins and plums and a light caramel backbone. Finishes very smoothly, a nice easy drinker. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2006
Another great tap selection at Horse Brass. I selected it just on the name. Thick creamy head on a very dark red beer. Aroma is hops, hops, a hint of toffee, and hops. Flavour is like hop chocolate. Cool a Hop Chocolate IPA! harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 4, 2006
This stuff is killer. That is all I can say. A very nice strong ale, that is immediately there in your mouth, right off the bat, you know what you are drinking. The malt character is rich and balanced sometimes on the overwhelming side, the hops attack your tastebuds, but nothing ever gets too out of balance.

Tap at Rose and Raindrop. Medium brown color wtih a little bit of haze. Soda pop head, very fizzy and short lived. Grapefruit in aroma. Decent malt nose also. Medium bodied. Fair sweet malt balanced just barely with hop bitterness. Pretty good. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Dark mahogany with a creamy head and spotty lacing. Bitter and citrus hop aromas. Orange maybe. Malts of roast and caramel. Kind of toasty and piney. Hops are muted in the flavor, but the malts come out to play more. Thin body almost, finishes fruity and malty.

Sampled draught at Steelhead Brewing, Eugene3fourths (9345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Tawny color, pellucid. Protein rich head, nose of some hops with some rich malt complexity. The flavor is similar, nicely nutty & malty. Finishes sweet & smooth.
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 Cask, Rose & Raindrop, Portland. Dark murky red and brown color. Highly hopped sweet plum and wood nose. Roasty, smooth wood and coffee with some dark fruit, dates, plums, black cherries... roasted oak flavor. A little assertive roasty hops in the flavor... nutty, woody overall. An excellent brew.

pours a dark brownish red color, has a very nice beige colored head, creamy and long lasting, very hoppy sweet hop aroma mixed with a slight bit of malt. Tasted very hoppy, aromatic floral hops and decent malt body, not great but decent, some slight spiciness as well.
Pretty good winter brew
