Pours clear dark brown color with small head. Aroma of fruits, hops, caramel, dark berries, lemon and spice notes. Flavour of ripe fruits, malts dark berries and hops. At times feels like a black ipa, weird but good.
Pours a deep amber with a thick body and a nice off-white head. Nose is pruny hops with a light raspberry syrup kick. Flavor is a rush of prune, hops and strawberry with finish of nutty wood syrup. Lingering mouthfeel. Tasty. Steverus0 (332) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Nice and caramel, with a rich frothy head and a subtle mouthfeel. A great winter beer in the celebration style. Light on hops, rich in malts and best paired with a fire, a book, and a warm blanket during a snow storm.

Pours mahogany with a tan head. Aroma is citrus, pine, bready and slightly roasty malts, and hints of fruit. Tastes of pine, caramel, bread, and fruit. Nice and smooth with moderate hop bitterness. The flavors in this reminded me of a barleywine. dnstone (3719) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 24, 2015

bottle @ Calandro’s / Baton Rouge LA --- enjoy by 03/01/17 --- Aroma of malt, hops, and light spice. Clear mahogany color, beige head that sinks to a full cover, sheets of lace. Taste is malt, medium carbonation, and a burst of medium hops. A good balance between the malt and hops. Simple, strong, to the point, good stuff. aplusbreaks (330) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2009
12oz bottle thanks to Douglas88. Pours a nice mahogany with a nice tan head, great retention and lacing. Aromas of caramel, biscuits, light chocolate, and toasted malts. Flavors are sweet malts up front, with some spice, nutty flavors, and a nice hoppy finish. Decent beer, I could surely drink more of. Thanks again Douglas.
