Bought 5 days before drinking. 7/4/5/3/11=3.0 Better cold. 7/4/6/4/13=3.4 BVery (11543) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2012

Bottle, shared with my wife. Deep amber brown, average tan head. Fruity caramel aroma, with deeper dark sugar notes and a pleasant yeasty edge. Rich malty palate, dark sugars, dates, fruity yeast. Rich and full bodied, excellent. Iphonephan (7558) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2015

Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. White head with good retention recedes to coat surface. Dark molasses and bitter earth front to back. johnnnniee (4488) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Pours a deep brown, slightly cloudy with garnet highlights when held to light. Bubbly frothy tan head shows some staying power and lots of sticky lace. Heavy toffee and caramel on the nose with hints of butterscotch, light fruit, and ethanol. Faint hint of earthy hops, but this one smells like its a gonna be sweet. My nose certainly didn’t steer me wrong this is a sweet beer. Lots of toffee, butterscotch, caramel and brown sugar, bits of fruit and earthy hops. Medium to thick body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy sugary mouthfeel. This grew on me, but it really needs something else. Maybe some more hops, or something else to cut through the almost over bearing toffee sweetness. puboflyons (3597) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 28, 2012
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an Oct ’12 expiration date. It pours a handsome looking heady, dark amber with slow moving carbonation. The head stays around. The aroma is malty and sweet with a mellow but notable hop feel. Medium to full body. The taste is malty sweet with a bite of yeast and a balanced dry hopped finale. A seriously good beer. jimhilt (2643) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2012
