I found this a surprisingly great beer. Very smooth and properly sweet. A full bodied beer that won't disappoint if you like a full flavored beer with a touch of Carmel and molasses. Enjoy! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice dark amber color with a short but nice head, minor lacing. Toast and caramel aroma is interesting and unique. Taste has a malt sweetness backed up by a nice mellow bitterness. Finishes clean and crisp. I like this brew a lot.

Flavor is malt, chocolate, a hint of cinnamon, and has a good amount of fiz. Has a medium amount of hop that gives it a good bite. Color is dark brown with a red hue. And it comes in an awesomely huge mug. Keep ’em coming.

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.

Surprisingly good for a Granite City brew! Very forward caramel, nutty, toasty flavor that is very enjoyable. Thinnish body but very flavorful and tasty brew indeed. Refreshing. Nice darkish brown color too.

Sampled from the tap at the St. Cloud location. Pours a clear amber brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and a bit of roasted malts with s hint of chocolate. Flavor is mainly dark grains and roasted malts with a hint of chocolate.
