12 oz bottle I brought back from CT - not quite as good as when I had it on tap, but close. Cloudy brown with a thin beige head. Interesting nose of caramel, earth and a touch of chocolate and pine. Solid chocolaty earth flavors with a lingering earthy finish. Really dug this beer!

12 ounce bottle. Very dark with just a little red. A tan ring. Rich fruity malts in the aroma. Dark fruit, very rich malts, and toffee are all tasted early. It is kind of like a fruit cake and it is a bit bready. Also a little like chocolate covered cherries. A dry bitterness begins to emerge and is somewhat a chemical effect. A good winter warmer of a beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap in Reading Terminal Market, pours a murky brown with some thin white head. Nose is odd, spice, candy sugar, some root vegetables, maybe even a little cooked squash. Flavor follows, cloves, all spice, candy, toffee. Boozy finish. Reminded me of a bad dubbel. Makes for an even worse scotch.

Draught: This one pours a clear, dark copper color. There was a small off white head. It has a good malty nose. Caramel, toffee, some fruits. The taste is good. Just a bit more than medium bodied. Toffee, caramel, a hint of chocolate, maybe some raisins. Some hop notes also that kept the sweetness down. Nice.
