thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2007
On tap at Barleys in Granville. Barely any aroma to speak of. Dark brown body with a decent head. Flavor is malty, with definite alcohol and a bad caramel flavor. Very dissapointing.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2006
The December special at the brewpub - Pours dark brown with ruby highlights and a nice creamy tan head that stays pretty well and laces the sides of the glass. Aroma is big of nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel, and a little vanilla. Flavor is caramel sweetness upfront but then the cinnamon, nutmeg, and a hint of vanilla find the tongue. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth and creamy with good body. A pretty nice beer here..
