Bottled. A nut brown beer with thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of metal, alcohol, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes nuts, alcohol, malt, metal, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks kp for sharing.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of kp. Clear, warm orangey brown with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma of burned caramel. Quite full-bodied with a shitload of malts and burned caramel. Absolutely no bitterness. Yummy for a malthead like me! 110709

Bottle from craftbeerdesign. Thanks again guy. Great trader are you. Pours very dark brown with a slight off-white head. Aroma is malt and a bit of heat. Full bodied with mild creamy carbonation. Flavor is a bit cola, mayhap more than a bit, with hints of roast malt and smoke. Nice ale indeed.

Drake (13952) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 14, 2009
22 ounce bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop in Durham, NC. Pours a clear red color with a medium head. Fair head retention and lacing. Nice caramel malt aroma with a fairly strong earthy hoppiness. Faintly smoky. Taste is caramel, raisin, and faint leafy hops. Medium-full bodied. A worthy beer to commemorate my birthday today.

Rich malty aroma, nice white head, a littl smoke in the finish. Slightly better than average mouthfeel. On sweet side, but not cloying.

slowrunner77 (12147) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2014
magnificently malty? maybe, but little to no smokey peet malt in the aroma and little in the flavor. full bodies? er...no. looked inviting, and the aroma was nice if a little light, and i was hoping for more peet. body was a little too carbonated for the style, and a touch light. the flavor was also pleasant, but light on chocolate malt, although there was a touch of smokiness not present in the aroma. lots of caramel malt. alcohol comes out a little and has a slight warming effect as the beer reached room temp. nice, but too little too late. a disappointment for a special release."

hopscotch (11161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottle… Dark, clear copper ale with a small, fizzy, taupe head. The aroma offers sweet chocolate, caramel and some nuttiness, but it’s far too restrained for my forty-year-old olfactory system to truly enjoy it. Full-bodied and oily with subdued carbonation. Flavor-wise, there’s potential – caramel, light chocolate, toffee – but overall, it’s thrown askew by a misplaced and overstated mineral bitterness. Lasting, mildly bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of craftbeerdesign!
