Part of their mixed pack on my trip to Maine. Seems to be called "Harvest Barn Ale" now. Pours a clear brown colour with a nice creamy beige head that is everlasting and with lacing. Beautiful coffee aromas. Roasted malt with some nice bitterness and hints of yeast. A good roasted malty brew for harvest.

Bottled August 3, 2014.
Glass: Fresh Slice can glass.
Appearance: The body is clear and mahogany hued with a tall and foamy tan head.
Aroma: The aroma is of cocoa primarily with a complex backing of maple syrup, toast, caramel and roasted peanuts. Good presence and good aromas.
Taste: The flavor matches the aroma nicely. Prominent malt base giving cocoa, hints of peanuts, toast, and a mild roast along with a dash of maple syrup. Great beer.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This is a fantastic beer. It’s complex, full of flavor, cheap and low in alcohol. I could drink these all day during the fall.
