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.

On tap. Poured deep amber with a swirly beige head. The aroma picked up sweeter dark fruits, toffee, and some fruity hops.. I didn’t get much "English" in the nose.. OK. The flavor found lots of fruity stuff again, with caramel and molasses helping to support.. berry seeds and peppery alcohol on the edges.. finished warm and fruity. Medium-bodied with low carbonation.. too sharp at times.
