On-tap at Island

Dark amber in color with a khaki head. Opens up with bread, toffee, and toasted malt. A little bit of caramel in there as well. Mild floral and earthy hop aromas, a touch of metal to it, too. The flavor is quite sweet. Toast, caramel, toffee, and an overripe fruit note. A bit of tart prune juice, a tinge of metal on the finish. Very light hops.

Bottle. GABF Silver Medal Winner 2002 and Gold Award at LA County Fair 2003, seems like it has a little pedigree. Pours a deep copper color with a light tan head that quickly disappears and collars around the glass. Malty, biscuit, nutty, caramel, and slight spice in the nose. Overall, not a bad smell but not great. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is...not that great. Slightly roasty with a perfume like note. Backbone really falls apart mid way through the game. This has an odd sweetness to it that doesn’t work for me. Lingering bitterness. Overall, meh, had once, not need to try again.

Pours a clear dark brown with a 1 inch puffy tan head that settles to a film on the top of the beer. Broken rings of lace form on the glass on the drink down. Smell is of roasted peanuts and roasted malt mainly. Taste is of the roasted peanuts and malt with a hop flavor on the finish. Mild roasty bitterness lingers on the palate after each sip. There is a good level of carbonation with a crisp and bubbly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is a bit one dimensional with the roast aroma and flavor.

22oz bottle into Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a dark ruby-brown with a couple fingers of light tan head that receded into a greasy film that left a network of thin lacing down the glass.
S: Sweet and briny with strange notes of what I think are spices or fruit.
T: Warm alcohol taste with notes of 'root-beer', chocolate and tobacco. Not a good combination. A touch of sourness to the finish with some bitter orange zest thrown in.
M: Medium body with even carbonation and a funky sour aftertaste.
D: A few mouthful of this was all I could handle. This one did not impress me at all. I see what they were going for in this one, sadly it's just not quite there yet.
