Pours deep dark purple red clear with slight amount of foamy tannish head. Aroma is syrupy sweet with lots of nuttiness and dark fruits. Flavor reminds me of a dark cherry slurpee. Dark cherry sweetness dominates with lots of buttery caramel flavor. Bit of a boozy medicinal edge. Overall, just so so.

Very hazy brownish orange color. Roasted malty aroma, very sweet, overpoweringly so. Hints of spices and a slight bitter finish.

A deep copper amber ale with a thick moka head. In aroma, butterscotch, oily and cloying. In mouth, a sweet nutty and musty malt with light nutmeg, vanilla, oily, cloying. On tap at Sunset Grill, Jan. 16 2011.

BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 5, 2008
[bottle] Malty aroma, with some concerning butterscotch elements. Reddish amber color, clear, with a tiny ring of bubbles. Flavors are full of malt power and some considerable bitterness, but any real unique character seems to be overpowered by the Ringwood... Not a bad beer, I personally have a hard time getting past the dominant yeast character.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2009
Bouteille de 12 oz, rapportée du New Hampshire par Suzanne. Arômes de caramel et de fruits rouges, présence d’alcool. Robe cuivrée et claire, peu de mousse et effervescence à grosses bulles. Plutôt mince en bouche, un léger malt caramel et une touche fruitée mènent à une amertume plutôt agressive et à une présence très forte d’alcool. Manque de corps et est un peu déséquilibrée.
