Pours an amber-golden with a light tan head. Banana aroma. Soft cottony mouthfeel. Tastes like Christmas pull candy. Sweet and savory.

Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some strong toffee, caramel and nut notes. The flavor is a bit different. I get some strong caramel, light smoke, maple, brown sugar and alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle was a gusher. Pours a hazy brown with fluffy tan head that leaves light lace. Aroma of sweet molasses, caramel, toffee, toasted barley, and a hint of booze. Taste follows, but no real booze burn at all. Nice, nothing awesome, but solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Independent Ale House. Pours clear reddish brown with small head. Aromas of molasses, caramel, earthy malts, and light coffee sweetness. Flavors lighter earthy malts, molasses, toffee, light nuttiness, bit of wood. Almost comes off like a dopplebock versus a brown ale. Dangerously drinkable for such a big ABV beer.

Sweet molasses finish. Reminiscent of Lagunitas. Probably too exotic for daily use.

Clear red - brown beer with a good pale tan head. Smooth palate, dry. Smooth malt, trace of caramel. Belgian like Coca Cola flavour. Traces of marmite and raisin. Dry finish, with a little spice.

Bottle pour at Rocket City Brewfest. Dark brown with a thick, creamy head. Strong aroma of earth, old wood, coffee, caramel. Rich flavor - sweet, with hints of rum, molasses, caramel, coffee and some spices. Very full feel in the mouth with a lot of effervescence. Slight bitter aftertaste. Great beer.

For an American strong ale, it sure was an easy drinker. It smelled plenty of rum with some tropical notes and molasses. Molasses wasn’t as strong in the flavor, and complimented the cherry and sweet malt flavors nicely. Finished with hints of graham cracker, oak and more rum. Thanks for sharing this one, OmegaX.

Hmmm....Bottle from Total Wine. Aroma is light molasses, coffee, dates, and light rum. Alcohol. Pour is dark brown, not much for a head. Flavor is similar. Very heavy molasses. Not much rum. Not the best, not the worst.
