Keg @ Sedona. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The nose is of strong caramel. Hints of cocoa. Pain au chocolate. Bready body. More cocoa. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Light body, moderate carbonation. Solid. PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Fort Myers, Fl. - Total Wine & More - 12 oz can. Slightly hazy, but mainly sparkling light copper pour. Clingy snow white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has an odd meaty essence to it, not unpleasant, some nutty accents. Flavor has some brief Christmas spices, some date-like fruitiness, some ripening vegetables. Crisp mouthfeel.

Appearance: Clear amber with a nice off-white head and some lacing
Aroma: Toasted sweet malts, caramel
Taste: Toasted nuts with some hop bitterness in the finish
To sweet for me.
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is dark amber to light brown.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, toasted grain/cereal), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of decaying plums.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Quite disappointing. Not much malt or hop character in the nose and it has a rotting fruit odor too. Bland in the mouth with a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. A dumper.

12 ounces from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Amber and generally clear beer with an off white two finger head. Caramel and grain flavor and aroma. Noble hops bring a little sulfur. Just a little fruit. Not exciting but at 4% . . . Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Canned. Poured clear, bright reddish-orange with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma picked up fruity and caramel notes with light spicy accents. The flavor found sweet caramel at the core with fruity notes, some spices, and light oxidation around.. muddled finish. Light-medium bodied and tacky on the palate.. OK, but not the least bit exciting. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle & Tap Park City Utah. Amber colored pour. Roasted malts, some sweetness. pretty average.. ajnepple (6978) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2013
12 oz bottle. Deep amber/copper color and clear with a small white head and no lacing. Aromas of toasted grains, bready malts and hay. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation. Flavor is mostly toasted and caramel malts, faint honey and vanilla sweetness with a light hop bitterness that finishes dry. Pretty crisp and clean. Meh, not for me. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle: Deep amber, quite hazy, moderate fizzy sand colored head, spotty lacing. Grainy nose, slightly nutty. Dull sweet malt start, slightly roasty, becoming more grainy and nutty as it progresses. Body and mouthfeel are average. Fairly clean finish, given the graininess that starts out up front. A bit of tang on the exit, even seems a tad bit citrusy. Not half bad, but not really my favorite style. Thanks Jordan for the bottle!
