andrewje41 (3644) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2017
12 oz bottle poured, with a massive thanks to Chris for the bottle. Any time I get to try a top rated beer from a style, Im in. Dark copper brown pour with a thick, cream foam head. Toasty, slightly sweet caramel aroma. Flavor is a good roasted malt, paired with a slightly sweet rich caramel. Slight plastic. Some vanilla. Thick body. Pleasant cream. A delicious beer for the style. Pretty sure it deserves the top spot in the style. Excellent.

luttonm (6013) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Rainy night tasting. Huge thanks to Chris. Thin off-white foam, deep ochre, amber and mahogany. Deep rosy malt flavor, rather interesting. Nose is copper-metallic, deep freshly milled barley nose. Reminds of kvas in a sense, dark rye bread. Malty sweet resin edge. Pretty tasty for the style. Nice.

Tap at CYO. Pours a deep brown with a finger of foam that lingers. Lots of malt on the nose with caramel toffee and chocolate standing out. Full-bodied with a chewiness to it. More caramel chews on the palate. A good fall/winter beer for sure.
