UPDATED: JAN 7, 2010 12 oz bottle from the Four Firkins. Deep red color, aroma is malty with a slight caramel note. Flavor is mostly hoppy with some roasted caramel coming through. Finish is bitter/hoppy. **re-rate Had some of this on tap at Boston’s last night and it was really good. I got a lot more of the roasted/nutty/chocolate flavors out if it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a light tan head mostly lasting. Very creamy and full bodied on the palate. The taste is malty, of dark roasted malts, with some molasses and caramel overtones. A bit of hops and spice on the finish. A fine sipping ale on a winter’s eve. Pairs well with nuts or pretzels.

12oz. brown bottle served in a shaker pint glass. Poured a deep brown with less than a finger of white head. Deep malty aroma, molasses and caramelized sugar. Rich malty flavor and mouthfeel. Plenty of caramel malt. Not a lot of hop bitterness, but enough to balance out the malt sweetness. Very easy drinking, solid beer.

It’s dark enough, but a tad thin in "flavour".
