I enjoyed it! It had a lot of interesting flavors going on. You could taste the molasses and the spruce. Interesting beer. I think I'll have another.

Evergreen aroma, nice golden brown color. Mint-like flavor tones follow the aroma. Malt backbone supports aroma, flavor, and hops. Clean aftertaste.

Dark amber with beige head. Caramel malt aroma. Rich malty flavor some roasted malt flavor. There’s a slight flavor on tongue that must be coming from the spruce but its not the flavor I expected from spruce. Really smooth beer.
