Poured from a can. Very lively pour, much too aggressive coming out of the can. Had a sour and metallic quality to both aroma and taste that is incredibly off-putting. Poor quality control. (189 characters)

A: Pours brown and hazy.... Nice tan head on top, super thick. In the glass it's basically muddy water.

S: Rich caramel and a touch of milk chocolate sweetness. There is something almost a little fruity in there as well.

T: Very sweet, notes of caramel, molasses, and brown bread. There is a touch of fruitiness in it, and possibly a hint of smoke.

M: Medium light in body, with high carbonation... Very high carbonation for the style.

O: Overall I'm not impressed. The flavor isn't too bad but the appearance and carbonation seem off. (545 characters)

Poured from the can into a wee heavy glass. Straight down the middle since I only have so much, sure why not go for it. Interesting to see this having had the barreled version first.

Woah there nelly, good thing we brought out the big glass cause this one is gushing a bit. Out of control head, but classic toffee light tan color and crème brulee appearance. This head though just will not quit. Body bulb is murky, floaties, and some dark flakes as well mixing in with the head on top like sprinkled flakes of nutmeg. Murky body. Egg nog this is not folks. Not a good start gentlemen, while having some wee heavy like character coloristics this is not making for a nice presentation to say the least.

Aroma brings some light toffee, almost waffery and sweet cookie like. Hints of and almost lemon lime soda sweetness also matching in which actually comes out very nicely. Fairly alright but nothing great.

The palate matches at least to the noses description. Mellow light toffee, even some nice spiced caramel sugars coming in, and a finish that comes with controlled clove and other dry brown spices on the aftertaste. Light bodied and slightly wet, with a very fleeting palate though. Toffee light quality comes out with a bit of crispness to taste which is actually a nice change from some of the classic booming malt bomb wee heavies at times.

Appearances aside, comes out drinkable at least, if memorable for perhaps some of the wrong reasons. (1,467 characters)

12oz can into a shaker pint.

A: Pours a nice-looking clear deep amber with 1"+ tan head that recedes very quickly. Retention is middling, lacing is pretty darn good.

S: Big caramelly malt & roasted nuttiness. Some candied fruit & almost jammy aromas. It's a nice whiff.

T: Very fruity up front. It leads with macerated raspberry & black cherry notes. Mid palate features a big caramel flavor along with some faint hop character. Finish is off-sweet with a lingering cocoa note that I really enjoy.

M: Carb is fairly high. The body is pleasantly light & surprisingly refreshing given the flavors & gravity.

O: This is such a great take on the style, super-drinkable & full of deep, complex flavor. (713 characters)

The look of this beer excited me. The taste not so much. Dark and hazy mahagony body with a thick and fluffy khaki head. Great retention and sticky lacing.

Smell is dull and faint with some sweet malts and just a hint of piney hops. A bit of milk chocolate.

Taste is dominated by a strange metallic sweetness. I don't mind a sweet Scotch Ale but this was too cloying. Mild hop bitterness didn't manage to round this out well enough.

I really wanted to like this because it is local. And I am on a canned beer kick. But this just didn't hit the mark for me. Wasn't awful or a drain poor, but getting there. (617 characters)
