Pours dark brown wit a thin tan head. Smells of sweet malt, light spice. Tastes sweet and cherry like with some spicy hints on the finish. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

A tad tart with alcohol apparent, and fleeting sweetness. To address the previously stated idea that the sourness is an unintentional feature of Yards’ bottling process, I will say that I’ve had it straight from a keg at the brewery, and it still tastes that way. wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Poured a very dark brown which looked like a dubble. The smell was very strong, in fact too strong for my taste. The alcohol was very strong in the aroma. The aroma was fruity, and had liquorice and a bitterness like vinegar in it as well. The taste was the same, but the alcohol came up and bit me. Pretty good, but nothing to go crazy over. bu11zeye (13140) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2005
(Draught, Drafting Room) Pours a murky dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of licorice and dark fruits. Flavor of licorice, raisins, cherry, molasses, and a hint of wood and smoke.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 On tap, Grey Lodge: Cherries, mollases and alcohol all dominate this beer now and I like it. A decent finishing burn from the alcohol make this beer a 2 "Danger Will Robinson" special. dberger624 (1028) - Voorhees, New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Draft at the brewery. Nice malt character throughout the whole beer. Alcohol was hidden rather well. joeec5 (204) - bayonne, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2004

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2005 Murky dark brown color with a good size tan head. Lost a few ounces on opening as the bottle was a real gusher.
Sour, yeasty aroma that reminded me of pumpernickle bread. Tasted a lot like a Flemish sour ale. Sour, yeasty flavor that was weird but enjoyable. BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - NOV 5, 2004
This one litre bottle has been sitting in my cellar for I think over a year now. Very dark chocolate brown in color leaving a thin creamy film on top. Aroma is sweet with fruity and malty notes. Some vinegar in there too. Flavor has an unusual sourness that I don’t like. Is it supposed to be sour? Very rich in malt and swettness. Body is like a Tripel, medium bubbly. Overall I just couldn’t get past the sourness of this brew.
