Very metalic in the smell, giving way to sweetish syrup note. Very light on the malt and drastically light on the hops resulting in a watery mouth feel. Poorly mixed malts and underhopped. Only thing they managed to do was hide the 7.5% APV.

Clear deep amber with almost no head or lacing. Faint smell of vegetables and malt. Smooth mothfeel and low carbonation. Tase of dark malt, caramell and prunes. Fruity aftertaste.

On tap at Green Turtle in Annapolis. Pours murky brown, smell of ttoffee malts and spices. Flavor includes plenty of spice. Not completely off-putting. Maybe worth trying if you’ve got no other options around (the case at GT).

Big and lasting brown head. Clowdy red-brown color. Big pale malty aroma with a tuch of caramell. Caramell malty taste but low sweetness and balanced body with a medium bitterness. The big alcohidden in the beer.ole content is not present and well the beer.

Spicy malts on the nose and flavour, I was expecting either lots of spice, or loads of depth, but it’s just a decent strong ale

Very new genre for me. Certainly wintery. Strong taste of oak? Not bad. Love the color.

Bottle received as a gift. Very warming, although I think that's the strength. A pretty enjoyable dark ale
