Bottle courtesy of moejuck. I have always been impressed w/ IH s brews. Kinda the East coast version of Pizza Port- quality brews from top to bottom. This is another quality IH brew- chocolate, caramel, smoke, with a crisp, dry finish.

Growler... Dark, mostly clear burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma provides notes of chocolate, banana and dark fruits. Sweet, chocolaty flavor. Not too boozy. Banana esters. Light smoke and spice phenols. A whisper of mint. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes sweet, chocolaty and fruity. Kudos to kmweaver for picking up the growler!

Growler provided by kmweaver. Clear, dark amber with small off-white head. The aroma is cherry, vinous, candi sugar, banana and clove. The flavor is very sweet, lots of fruit, apple, pear, banana and some clove, slightly medicinal. Medium/full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation, slightly astringent finish.

Tap, Iron Hill Wilmington. Dark, cola-brown appearance with a slight reddish tint; off-white head with excellent retention. Cola and candy sugar aroma, with dried fruits. Full, chewy mouthfeel: good levels of carbonation, maple syrup and dried fruits, some belgian spice and yeast, floral hoppiness; complex, layered palette. Slightly dry, cola and candy sugar finish.

Thanks to egajdzis for splitting this growler with me... Appears a hazy dark mahogany with a small light tan head. Spotty lacing is left all around the glass. Smell is of candi sugar, toffee, grapes, brandy, light rauch, cocoa, caramel...very complex with a touch of smoked meat. Taste is of the same aromas with a raisiny, rum cake, cocoa, liquid smoked flavor swirling about. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly boozy, sweet, again with a meaty, sugary complexity that keeps you thinking about the hidden enigmas buried in this brew.

Had a huge mug of this stuff in Newark last night. Pour was dark red/brown with a small tan head. Very complex aroma. Lots of dark cherries, carmel, chocolate, sweet smoke, and mild alcohol. The flavor is extremely well balanced with a lot of nice flavors and a well hidden alcohol hint. I believe this is, by far, my favorite I.H. Belgian style beer.

Glad to have found this one for lunch today. The pour, in a goblet, was dark blackish with ruby hints and a khaki head. The aroma was very roasty malty, with some grapey fruit, hops, brown sugar, and almond. The palate was dense and complex, with well hidden alcohol, providing a base flavor of roasty malt, chocoff, cabernet, spice, brown sugar, and some rauchy notes. This one is stellar, and worth driving 3 hours for.

Poured a cloudy redish brown. very small head. Arom was of caramel malts cherries, fruits. Flavor was much the same, some plums in there as well. Little roast as well. Overall was a little hot but solid beer.
