Jpflanz (5) - - JAN 4, 2013
Much better than I expected. Especially after following a dogfish head 90. Pours a Carmel color with a more pronounced head than expected. One of the best aromas Ive enjoyed in an IPA. Nice hoppy start, with a peculiar after taste that I couldnt put my finger on, but like it as a differentiater. Was a little over carbonated, but scored better than expected.

Originally rated on 12/31/08. I was expecting something a little darker and heavier but this turned out more like an IPA than a winter beer. Hoppy in aroma and flavor, some spice and malts show up in the taste. It leans toward the skunky side but it was tolerable. An o.k. brew

JPDIPSO (6171) - Wauwatosa, USA - APR 30, 2017
Copper to light umber color with a smallish light tan head and a fairly heavy sheet of lace. Somewhat odd aroma with caramel malt and vegetable scent. The palate is very nice with a soft effervescence and just enough heft to not make it feel wimpy. Light start of sweetness is quickly swept away by an somewhat sulfuric mix. Slight metallic feel late. Bitter and nutty finish. Odd. 1/12

This is a Hoppy Red Brrr. I'm not sure if this is the right category for tasting. Nice combination though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martjoobolut (4080) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle, BB 03.08.17 (from boxbeers). Pours red amber with beige head. The head stays for a long time. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malt. Flavor is sweet and bitter, caramel, pine, malt, toffee. Finish is pine bitter. Covers the ABV really well. Overall: bit macro (it has a kind of really clean/neutered feeling as other Widmer stuff), but otherwise nice, sweet, caramel-malt driven beer with some piney hops.

Consume 01.30.2017 as a single. Paid $1.29 for a 12floz bottle with August 3, 2016 as its bottling date. Appears a dark nut chestnut amber - check. Sweet, raisin-like aroma - check, but also a bit buttery and boozy. Hmmm...this is pretty smooth. Its not something that bombards my mouth. Medium-full bodied, and leathery sweet. I consider this worth drinking as a middle of the road American strong amber. It aint offensive.
