Pours ruby brown with aroma of spice, dark fruit, and rock candy. Spice flavor with raisin, fig, plum, and some rock candy sweetness. Very nice.

hopscotch (11051) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Draft... Clear copper-colored pour. The aroma is faint, but thereís maltiness here. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and adequate carbonation. The flavor is malty-sweet with just enough bitterness to keep the residual maltose in check. Lingering malty-sweet finish. Really good stuff and a fantastic digestif. Perfect for sipping after eating a huge, delicious Fat Headís sandwich.

Raisins and figs punch you in the face. They mask the high alcohol content perfectly. Little malty feel left after the fact. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HoppityHop (206) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2015
One of the most enjoyable beers Iíve had in recent memory. Nose of mixed fruits and tastes of the same, with a sweetness of rock candy and luscious malts. Pours a ruby brownish-black with minimal head. Alcohol is not at all noticed until you have a few......and trust me, youíll WANT a few. Fantastic!

Tap @ Pittsburgh South. Dark auburn with cream head and decent lacing. Smells like raisin bread. Boozy, sweet, spiced, creamy.

Deep ruby pour, small off-white head. Aroma is big figs, dates, dried and dark fruits. Flavor of big dark fruits, candied sugars, and yeast. Great.
