A nice malt flavor and a great contrast to some of their other beers. Not to heavy but it does have a great caramel and hit of chocolate.

Brewer gives a very accurate description in my opinion. "medium body, and a sweet smooth malt flavor" sums it up well.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2012 Great smell. The aroma of this beer got me going. I couldn’t wait to drink it. What an interesting taste almost a grape taste. It went down smooth and left very little after taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep brown with a beige head. Aroma is very malty, with toffee, chocolate, bread, and I think I detect some darker fruit in there, perhaps raisin. Earthy. This translates into a very similar taste, with the toffee standing out the most. Lighter in body with an earthy aftertaste. Nothing great here, but it isn’t bad.
