Slight acidic and burnt coffee flavor. Bitterness is there, but not from the hops. Strong malt backbone.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Middle of the road winter ale. All the usuals. Nuts, spices and chocolate. Doesn't really mesh as well as it's analogs. PugUglyBrewer (791) - - NOV 7, 2017
Dark garnet color with a healthy sized head of creamy khaki colored foam. Aromas and flavors of winter spices with dark fruit like figs and dates. Has a solid caramel malt base with some earthy hops included. Very good brew to slide into the holiday season with. balloonbuffoon (605) - - NOV 1, 2017
12floz bottle, BBD: 05.04.2018, $1..75 unit cost, mug glass. A dark amber ale with moderate head formation, and an aroma of wild red berries and pine needle. NOt very strong English ale at all, but that's okay. It's a decent hoppy (and fairly malty) dark red ale that has flavors as described. Very much what I'd consider an evergreen beer to be, pine and dirt wrapped in a medium-full body. Not a session beer, but a pretty good stand alone (or intermixed in a session) beer. higgsbison (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Seems to be a well thought of beer. I did not care for it. Can't exactly say why. It was a bit better than I normally like they also had an odd taste, Chichory perhaps

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and generic malts with hints of chocolate, some light spiciness, floral hops, and dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. No no no no no.
