gripweed57 (2452) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Mahogany color topped with a moderate creamy beige head. Faint roasted malt nose. Hints of burnt caramel and toffee. Sweet roasted malt flavor is pleasant and spicy with cocoa and cinnamon-like notes. Spruce-like hops in midtaste balance this nicely. Slightly warming though the 8% alcohol is well hidden.

More of a porter style than ale. Not my cup of tea but it has nice flavor. I would recommend this but wouldn't have this again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy tan head. Aroma has a touch of oxidation, but the caramel and chocolate notes come through as well. The taste is dark malty and sweet. It has a slight offset with the use of hops, but not enough to materially change the malty backbone.
