COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is indeed a full-bodied Strong Ale; a Hybrid between a Porter and a Scottish Ale…
This hearty winter warm ale is named in honor of American poet Henry Longfellow.

I remember the black wharves and the ships, and the sea tides tossing free……. And the beauty and mystery of the ships, and the magic of the sea. –“My Lost Youth”

omhper (19219) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2006
Bottled. Mahogany colour, rich but brief head. Complex aroma of madeira, hay, cinnamon, chcolate and caramel. Medium bodied with clean crystal malt character. Notes of pears and butterscotch. Resiny finish with lingering bitterness. Very interesting flavourwise, but with too clean mouthfeel to work as a winter warmer.
