(Bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of mollasses, nuts, dark fruits, and I agree with Lumpy’s description "spicied rum". Flavor of sweet caramel malt, dark fruit, and spices.

"man, i;d had this a couple times in years past and liked the malty, subtley spiced goodness...this year’s was overwhelmingly boring. no aroma, little body, little taste. what the hell is going on here? older versions at least a 3.4. currently a 2.4 at best."
