Enjoy it on tap at Hawk’s Bar & Grill on State St. Madison! Great seasonal brew for the cold winter months. Friend that works here has turned me onto it and it has turned into my favorite winter brew this winter. Which is off the beaten path of my Stouts and Mead.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Nessun Dorma, October 2013. Listed as 10% abv. Sweet, darkly malty aroma, fruity with notes of plum, raisin and molasses, some mild roast as well. Dark red-brown in color with a lasting, very fine, light tan head and matching lace. Flavor profile is entirely malty, sweet, dark and fruity, with suggestions of coffee, dark brown sugar, dried fruits, faint cocoa and dark bread. Finish is rather sweet as well. Smooth, hefty in feel, carbonation is low, body is very full. Good. Not outstanding, but good.

November 12, 2014 - tap at Millioke. Dark brown pour with limited head. Aroma was caramel, malt and some alcohol. Taste was consistent with aroma, but heavier on the alcohol and a sugary sweetness with some dark fruit that I didn’t get in the aroma. Dry alcohol finish and medium bodied.

Big sweet and chocolatey. Not a whole lot of complexity, as ther is little to no hop presence or peat malt smokiness, but it still works. Smooth.bodied dessert beer."
