4 or 5 oz. pour, on tap at the brewpub in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 6-20-15. Pours a very nice maroon with an amber hue. Beige head. Looks good. Plum, caramel, and raspberry scents. Fruity flavor matches the fruity aroma. Malty taste. Medium to full body. Lively in the palate. Not my preferred style of beer but good for what it is. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - JUN 19, 2015

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a very thin tan head that dissipates completely. Aroma has lots of bread and grain notes with a touch of underlying toffee. Flavor has sweet grains and toffee with a bit of caramel and a hint of bread. juiceisloose (1477) - Windermere, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Growler, courtesy dchmela. Pours a mostly clear, dark reddish amber color and topped by a small, smooth head of beige colored foam that settles to a thin film and leaving random spots of lace on the glass. The aroma is based in sweet caramel, brown sugar, and bready malts to go along with some dark fruits, spices, and some vanilla to smooth things out. The flavor follows suit with the bready malts, dark fruits, caramel, and some balancing earthen hop bitterness. The alcohol comes through a bit on the finish as well. Medium bodied, smooth, with moderate carbonation and a sweet finish with some alcohol warmth. Fairly straight forward, but solid brew either way.

Growler. Clear and dark, sporting a reddish-amber hue, the body sports a small, smooth cap of beige foam. Moderate lacing is primarily spotty in nature. Aromas start out with caramelized brown sugars and sweet bread crust malts, hinting also at stewed raisins and a little winter spice. Vanilla makes an appearance, and some mild, earthen hops do well to keep things somewhat in balance. Flavors largely follow suit, again very bready and malty, laden with caramelized sugars, dark bread, and some sugary dark fruits, all with a earthy hop counterpoint and some noticeable alcohol. Substantial in body and smooth, with moderate carbonation, the palate shows some boozy warmth and a sweet finish, but doesn’t get to be overly hot or cloying. Overall, it’s a solid brew. Maybe a little mundane, but well made nonetheless. dchmela (3062) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2010
Growler pour. Deep red pour with a thick off white head. Huge caramel, toffee and citrus hop aroma. Lots of toffee notes, great body with nice citrus hop bitterness poking through. Good stuff.
