ARH (1118) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 On tap poured into a snifter glass. Smells sweet with notes of maple, molasses, and a touch of bread and oak. It pours a dark, murky mahogany color with a beige colored, soapy head that retains a thick ring around the glass, a messy surface, and just a light lacing. It’s mostly sweet (medium-high) with a medium-light bitterness. The mouth is full bodied and malty rich with a maple and molasses forward flavor, accompanied by a mellow, oaky whiskey and port wine. It?s texture is oily and sticky with a creamy carbonation. Toffee and oak dominate the finish accompanied by a light, mild bread note and an alcohol warmth. The aftertaste is reminiscent of a turtle candy with an alcohol dryness. This one is a nice dessert beer.

Draft at brewpub. Ugly brown drain water appearance. Thick like a puddle with some spit like lacing. Aroma has a strong smell of rotten apples. A mix of high octane, autolysis, and unfermented caramel malts. Fortunately, the flavor is much nicer. Light sweet and earth brown malts with some unfermentables left over. Just a light apple character at the end . Lighter and less high octane than expected. Sweet brown sugar syrup aftertaste. Hate the aroma, fine with flavor.

ccex (1200) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2014
On tap at Clybourn brewpub. Color is dark brown with some reddish hues. Small tan head quickly dissipates to lace. Aroma has toffee, honey, raisins, chocolate, molasses and alcohol. Taste is sweet and a bit nutty with a boozy finish. Body is full with medium carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. A very satisfying dessert beer.

Sampled from the tap at the Clyborn. Pours a clear deep ruby with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has a combo of sweet and earthy grains with a bit of booze and honey. Flavor has a bit of light fruit and sweet grains with a bread note coming out in the finish.

Wonderful beer. Pours an almost black brown with some amber hues. Mild tan head that fades to lace. Raisin and ripe apricot aroma. Roasty raisin sweet flavors with a coffee bitter finish. Full bodied and creamy.
