deep red color - almost brown; fairly well balanced; toasty malt with caramel notes and a good deal of hop bitterness AKORN (221) - Virginia, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Malt and hops aroma. Clear amber color with little head. Roaster malt and mild bitterness. OK beer chinchill (5377) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2014
12 oz bottle (no date but purchased 2 days ago) served in a snifter.
An unusual amount of ressure released by uncapping. Pours dark and murky red-brown in color, hazy and with an over-sized, creamy tan head that has excellent retention and leaves the glass well coated with lacing.
Flavor: better than the nose and drinkable, but still poor.
Feel: soft and smooth with high carbonation.
O: possible infected, making 2 out of 3 (all different beers) for me from this brewer. Should re-visit but the lack of quality control discourages that. Iphonephan (7474) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2013

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with thin tan head. Nose of caramel, roast, berries, stale hop. Medium body and bitterness. Light carbonation. Not bad

A dark red beer with a small off white head. The aroma is hay and nutty malt. The flavor is roasted malt, slight cocoa, and nuts. DCLawyer (2931) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle->shaker. Pours a murky brown. Fairly straightforward malt and hops, no surprises. Nothing special, but then nothing wrong either. jrob21 (3874) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Sticky rubbing alcohol sort of aroma. Flavor is malty caramel and a fruity malt profile. Medium body. Rather non descript.
