Nice beer. I randomly grabbed since another of my favorites was not in stock. This beer is really drinkable. Nice thick maltiness and little bitterness makes this beer one I will certainly buy again.

Deep hazy dark copper hue with a ivory cap. Earthy toffee and boozy musty tones. Yummy sweet earthy bready malt flavors with a kiss of moss and dark malty Scotch tones. Smooth and nutty and earthy boozy sweet. Nice.

From a bottle into pint glass. Nice one finger light brown head that sticks around for a while, dark brown beer with some light coming through on the edges. Brown sugar, yeast, caramelized sugars. Medium to high carbonation, sweet, medium body, hint of bitterness. Long finish of sweet brown sugar with a hint of burnt toast.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddish brown beer with a thin creamy tan head. Nose of cocoa, chestnuts, and toasted brown bread. Flavor is more potent than the aroma with roasted dark grain, unsweetened dark chocolate, and bitter almonds finished with a toasty bitterness that lingers a bit, but becomes a bit acrid over time. Decent.

12 oz bottle. From the Arcadia Ales, Kalamazoo, MI.
Dark reddish brown color with a tiny tan head.
Sweet malt, mild hops, some farmyard and dryness in the aroma.
Sweet malt, alcohol, Coke, hops, bitterness and cough drops in the flavor. I don't like this much.

4.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Smells like caramel malt. Looks like Coke. Tastes like watery caramel malt. Feels like velvet water.
This is my favorite dark beer at the moment. It is ridiculously drinkable. Not too sweet, not heavy, not boozy or bitter. Just a little bit of all the right things and 8%ABV. Love it.
