18oz bottle acquired in trade with douglas88 (thanks!). Poured a medium and hazy amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of nuttiness, earhty, toasty, caramel and buttered popcorn that started drowning everything out. Tastes of the same butteriness. Sour, sour finish. Something was off with this....

Small handle accented swing top growler courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear copper with some gold edges and thin white head. The aroma is sweet with malts and a bit of caramel, dates, prunes and yeasty spice. The flavor is much the same with a mix of caramel, dates, plums, apricots and spice. Pretty sweet overall and picking up the standard notes for the style that I can’t always discern.

Another nice beer from Squatters. Available during the 20th anniversary celebrations in 500 ml bottles for in house and big old growler-type bottles for take out. Pours a deep copper color with a massive off-white head. The aroma is sweet caramel, loads of rich fruity and sweet malt notes. The flavor is a very drinkable and fresh mix of sweet caramel, rich malts, light hops and a ton of flavors. A nice full mouthfeel. Extraordinarily drinkable. A great beer.
