On tap at the Ace-Hi Tavern. Brown and clear with a white head. Toasted malts, caramel, toffee, bread, light chocolate and spices. Medium body with a crisp feel. Not bad.

Pours a dark brownish-amber. Has a light chocolate and malt aroma. Mine was served with a chocolate powdered rim. Taste is strong with chocolate and a nice mix of light malt and some spices. Has a sweet and smooth taste.

Pours reddish brown with thick tan head. Aroma seemed to have a hint of chocolate perhaps? Malty. The taste has a slightly bittersweet taste, with a smooth finish. Not bad but not as sweet as I expected from the label description.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Sweet smell and taste but rather nondescript. Pours clean, amber color with light head. Not too bad, tasty but could be better.

I wish this was sold year round. It’s robust, yet has a sweet finish. If you like dark beer but wish there was something sweeter and lighter, then this one’s for you! I stock up in the fall so I have it all year round.

Bottle. Clear reddish brown pour with a thick tan head. Malty and caramelly nose with notes of roast, slight esters, vanilla and sugar. Sweet malt and caramel flavor with subtle Belgian esters and some breadiness before a semi-sweet finish.
