AgentAle (1662) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2016
Aroma is tart, sweet malts, honey, clove and fig. Taste is dark fruits, yeast, candy sugar, and slight earthiness. The pleasant sweet palate of dark fruits and malts compliments the accenting bittering hops. Appearance is a clear dark amber with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Courtesy of JCW. Transparent maber with minimal off white head, fades to a ring of film rather quickly. Great lacing. Sweet caramel malt up front with roasted grains and alcohol in the nose. Flavor is very sweet. All caramel and toffee up front, fades to a bready/cardboard middle with a huge alcohol kick in thw finish. Sticky-oily mouthfeel. Very nice brew would be alot better if the alcohol wasnt so prominent. Big thanks to John for the rarity!!

Brown in color clear with a thin head. Tons of malt and raisin malt aroma. Big barrel aging flavors and thick sweet malts. This was a tasty beer. Warms up well and was great for the cold day. Dried fruit flavors and finish.

drowland (8476) - Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2012
9/21/12. On tap at Kickbacks. Clear red amber pour with a nice fluffy khaki head that sticks and laces plenty. Sweet dark fruit aroma with touches of alcohol, plenty of sugars, and citrusy hops. Dark fruits, must, and sugars in the flavor with hoppy bitterness and some citrus. Surprisingly not terrible.
