Pours a deep rich mohagony amber color w/ a full creamy froth. Aroma is medicinal w/ dried fruit and malt. Full nectar w/ residual effers. Ths is one thick brew. Flavors are strong with dried fruit w/ black cherry, dark cocoa, maple, brown sugar, coffee bean, wood, vanilla, licorice, chewing tobacco.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown murky in appearance with a thin tan head. The aroma is brown sugar, cinnamon, cookies, vanilla, malty and fresh. The taste starts syrupy thick, with a pancake syrup sweetness balanced quickly with a bitter hop spiciness that is delicious. This is a quality brew but a little heavy on the sweetness needs more hop balance IMO but good brew overall.

Growler from the Drafting room Exton. Dark brown in color with slight red hue. Smells of dry fruits. Cherry, plum, raisin, and brown sugar make up the flavor. very sweet. Rich full body and mouthful gives way to mild alcohol burn. Alcohol becomes more pronounced as it warms.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
May re-rate this beer in a few years....but for now. Beer pours out a dark brown color with a small lacing head that quickly fades. Aroma is of some spices and some dried fruit. Nice mouthfeel, but the taste really needs some time. Flavors need to mature, but what was there were notes of dried fruit, spice, caramel and some chocolate here and there. A decent beer now, has potential to be good in a year or so.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is literally like liquid bread with a bit of plum juice, and a bit of an alcohol bite. Really smooth, with a bit of cola in the mouthfeel, some great dark fruitiness on the palate, and a bit of bittersweet caramel maltiness. Tons of yeastiness, with lots of chocolate and a bit of caremelized brown sugar. Super tasty and relaxing!

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Pours a very dark brown color with a thin, sparse head. Smell is nutty, spicy, and sweet. Nice feel to it and the taste is warm, slightly raisiny, slightly sweet, and has a nice dry finish to it. Very nice and gets better as it warms up a little.
