Amber pour, nearly a white head. Caramel flavors up front, a hint of dates and maybe some light raisiny notes. Very faint hop flavors are sneaking around. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2008

Thanks to Hopdog for sharing this growler. Pours a deep amber, clean with a thin lasting off white head. Aroma is toasted caramel malts, some light sharp crystal in there, alogn with some sweet fruits- raisin and figs, and brown sugar sweetness. Flavor is big bold full malts, munich, melanoidin, more brown sugar, sweet dried fruits, even some apricot in there with burnt toast hints. Finsihes a bit prickly and dry. Ok for an old ale. egajdzis (6693) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2008

growler brought by bockyhorsey to the PHX tasting. pours a clear thin caramel color with a small tan head that fades rather quickly due to it’s time in the growler. fruity sweet grain aroma along with some brown sugar. the flavor is very much the same with a little spicy kick on the finish. it tastes like a decent beer... just watered down. thin to medium bodied with low carbonation (again from the growler)... thanks bill.
