I wasn’t sold on this beer first time I tries it but it grows on you. Malty brew and just a bit more hop than I prefer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle that was part of the World Market Winter Brews 9 pack, courtesy of my in-laws. Best by 05/15/16 2240 11 on label. The pour is clear brown copper ruby with a three inch foamy light tan head. The aroma is rich toffee malt, chocolate and a bit of nutmeg and chicory towards the back, particularly as the beer warmed. The taste is the big chocolate sweet malt up front, moves towards some nice earth and spice towards the back. Rich chocolate carries the lingering aftertaste. The palate is medium bodied, softer carbonation and the long chocolate aftertaste. Tasty one.
