On tap at Flix. Pours reddish-brown with nice tan head. Aroma of strong toffee, burnt caramel and malt with a great spicy kick to it. Flavor is much the same with a nice sweetness and a well balanced alcohol spice blended in with this malt forward brew. Mouth feel is heavy body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, I thought this was an outstanding brew and was very surprised it was that tasty!
