On tap @ Porkys Pizza Palace. Amber pour with a small off-white head. Nose is sweet and cola-like. Nuts, caramel, toffee, and some dark fruits. Flavor is quite sweet as well. Lots of cola, nuts, caramel, and toffee. Kind of a weird iron flavor to it. Meh.

It’s been over a year since I tried this beer. I really enjoyed it, but the commercial description will have to do. If you like other winter warmers / American strong ales that i have rated highly, this one won’t dissapoint you.
