3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed on tap at GI Clybourn, served in a snifter.
A: Pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights where the light hits. A tan head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring that leaves some soapy lace.
S: Chocolate malt with a light roasted malt background and a nice hint of sweet booze.
T: Big candied sugar sweetness with a nice mix of booze and chocolate malts. Nice roasted undertones with a little touch of honey and fruit. Nice toffee and nutty combination really round out a balanced taste.
M: Medium bodied with a pretty full mouthfeel. Nice medium carbonation level with a little sweet kick to it.
O: Very good. A little boozy and sweet, but it’s really good and I really liked it.
Serving type: on-tap

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 On tap poured into a snifter glass. Smells sweet with notes of maple, molasses, and a touch of bread and oak. It pours a dark, murky mahogany color with a beige colored, soapy head that retains a thick ring around the glass, a messy surface, and just a light lacing. It’s mostly sweet (medium-high) with a medium-light bitterness. The mouth is full bodied and malty rich with a maple and molasses forward flavor, accompanied by a mellow, oaky whiskey and port wine. It?s texture is oily and sticky with a creamy carbonation. Toffee and oak dominate the finish accompanied by a light, mild bread note and an alcohol warmth. The aftertaste is reminiscent of a turtle candy with an alcohol dryness. This one is a nice dessert beer. beastiefan2k (4111) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Draft at brewpub. Ugly brown drain water appearance. Thick like a puddle with some spit like lacing. Aroma has a strong smell of rotten apples. A mix of high octane, autolysis, and unfermented caramel malts. Fortunately, the flavor is much nicer. Light sweet and earth brown malts with some unfermentables left over. Just a light apple character at the end
. Lighter and less high octane than expected. Sweet brown sugar syrup aftertaste. Hate the aroma, fine with flavor.

On tap at Clybourn brewpub. Color is dark brown with some reddish hues. Small tan head quickly dissipates to lace. Aroma has toffee, honey, raisins, chocolate, molasses and alcohol. Taste is sweet and a bit nutty with a boozy finish. Body is full with medium carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. A very satisfying dessert beer. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 20, 2013
