2007 vintage, in a green bottle? Strange. Poured a copper color with a small tanned head. Aroma was subdued toffee and malts. Flavor was mellowed malts, with some caramel notes to it. Very smooth and pretty easy to drink after 5 years. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Shared by Dyan. Thank man, we’re gonna miss you.
Copper hued with an eighth inch of tan head. Slight haze. Aromas of toffee, a touch of butterscotch, malt. Smells aged. A bit of dampness / rain water. Cool. Taste follows suit. Mellow and easy drinking. Smooth on the palate. Thin to medium bodied. Nice beer, cool to have one five years old. Thanks Dyan. Geiserich (4660) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 8, 2012

Can’t believe I havent rated this before. The aroma is bread, fruit, boozy, good. The appearace is a hazy red, white head. The flavor is just like the aroma. The body is thick, and slightly sticky. Oine hops, lingering sweetness on palate. Pretty good. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - APR 29, 2012

Draft. Murky honey orange with a sparse head. Tastes like a light fruity bitter syrup. Slightly burned maple carmel apple. Some hop bitterness present but was too overpowed by the sweetness. shadey (2171) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 28, 2012
On tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. Amber color with a thin white head. Very sweet aroma with spice and earthy notes. The flavor is overly sweet and lots of abrasive spiciness. The malts are heavy and sticky. The finish is a little smokey and earthy. I understand the point, but I just didn’t enjoy it.
