On tap at PIB 2015, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out a good mix of resin and biscuity caramel malt. Flavour is quite fruity, with stone fruits, light piney hops and a dry biscuity malt backing. Well-balanced and clean, but not terribly complex. KyotoLefty (10531) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at Imazato. Fruity nose of orange and peach but not so fragrant. Rich malt flavor, honey, peaches. Quite sweet and a bit boring but nice drinking. mjg74 (3140) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from LifeSource. Pours a clear medium amber in color. Nose is sweet with some dark fruit and a touch of alcohol. Malty and fruity. Slick mouthfeel. Some hop character. Big and sweet and malty. Nothing really jumps out at me. julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2015
Poured from a 12. Aroma has a slight caramel nose. First flavor is sweet, crisp and very carbonated. Finishes dank, like a Bud, and really bitter. liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2015
12 oz bottle. Aroma: malty, fruity, woody, and slightly boozy and skunky, with hints of caramel, butterscotch, bread, and barnyard. Taste/Palate: sweet and thick; finishes slightly bitter and astringent.

Decent stuff. A big red beer with malt forward head, wonderfully un-metallic for the style. Soft and subtle but warm. I think they did a great job but a 6-pack is a stretch at this ABV. They going after the Lagunitas market? Reid (2587) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 13, 2015
12oz bottle from Lifesource Natural Grocers in Salem OR
Says 9.8% alc
Clear light copper coloured ale with a nice cream coloured half inch head.
Aroma not very prominent..mostly bready malts and the slightest of spice from the rye.
Taste oddly different more fruity .. light peach..nectarine ( the yeast), some caramel malts and a touch of cascade hops. Nice actually
Nice smooth palate..very little sign of the strong alc volume.
I liked this one..strong but a good sipper.

This beer is great! Mahogany in color, malty aroma, mild hop flavor, but just enough bitterness to let you know that you are drinking a beer made by someone who knows what a beer ought to be! 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Dark golden in color, moderate foamy white head, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Husky nose, slight alcohol.   Seems fairly bready.   Holy cow, that is some fire right up front, bready, with strong alcohol notes.   While it burns a bit, it comes and goes quickly.   A little mealy, but thankfully not cloying.   Doesn’t have any of the floral aspect of a Tripel, but I actually wasn’t really expecting that.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong bready finish, a touch mealy, with some alcohol burn.   Simple, but nothing off at least.   Its a bruiser tho! bhensonb (15498) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Tap at OBF. Pours amber with a slight beige head. Malty aroma. Near full bodied. Flavor is quite brown sugar. Not finishing dry. Tasty.
