Bottle. Pours a murky brown color with a tan head that quickly disappears. Aroma is caramel, sweet, and a little bit of a roasty character. Taste follows the aroma with a little bit of a bready aspect that doesn’t come through on the nose.

This is quite a heavy bodied deep reddish brown brew. On the sweet side in aroma and flavor with all of those malts. However, the alcohol is certainly held in check by the sweetness. I would have liked a bit more smoke on the back side. I wish I had some smoky cheese or oysters to go with this.

On tap at the University Roadhouse. Deep dark brew, sweet aroma with dark fruit and malty overtones. Taste is sweet, dominated iby malt, molassas and dark figgy fruit overtones, more than a little bitter and sour hoppiness in the finish, but the overall impression remains that of sweetness. An ethanol whooze in the after taste and ethanolic sweetness ala malt liquor permeate the flavor. Very satisfying palate and mouthfeel. very nice brew on the first cool day of late summer, would be great to warm up with after a long winter’s day outdoors.
