Tap at Pratt St Alehouse. Pours a clear red. Weak head. No lace. Nose is rum raisin, toffee, some chocolate. Taste is the same with some decently spicy alcohol and subtler rum raisin. Palate still has some chemical sharpness found in their other beers. Drinkable at least. sonnycheeba (6437) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2012
