On tap at the Nashville brewpub. Pours a clear dark brown color with reddish hues and a well-formed off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel dark fruits, and mild hop notes. Flavor is very malty and fruity, and probably the sweetest beer I had at Bosco’s. Sugar plum and raisin, caramel and toffee, with some hop bitterness on the finish. Medium-full bodied with medium-low carbonation. A nice beer overall, but not one of my favorites from Bosco’s.

Characteristic of its style. Well balanced and hides its alcohol well. I missed having this on cask by about 30 minutes! So I had to settle for having it on tap. Oh well. It was still good.
