UPDATED: MAR 23, 2017 Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Hannaford, Bedford NH. Aroma is straight bready malt. Appearance is clear reddish-amber with huge sparkle, rocky creamy beige head with excellent retention and mild lacing. Taste is bready malts with mild dank resinous hops. Palate is light bodied with thin texture, average carbonation with mix of malty and bitter finish. Overall, a highly drinkable beer with little nuance that has improved over the version a year ago with less citrus astringency, but still no warmth or evident alcohol so other than taste seems misclassified as a strong ale.

Pretty solid brew. No real aroma and honestly not particularly bold flavors, but just decent dark beer. A little creamy.

bottle from Adam Stovall - Thanks! --- Clear dark amber color, off-white head cover, spots and dots of lace. Taste is Full bodied malt with a little roasted overtones, that moves through a lightly carbonated swallow to a finish that has light hops, and serves to dry the palate. Overall a little heavy, but still quite drinkable.

Pours a light brown with a smallish head. Slight aroma of grapefruit and fresh cut grass. Flavor is a not at all like the aroma. Malty and sweet with just a bit of bitterness at the finish. This beer doesnt have the best aftertaste.

Had this out of a bottle, but it is copper in color. No lacing or head retention either. Smells malty, like a red. Tastes sweet and malty. Has a flavor of honey and some clove. A decent session beer for the holidays, but thats it.
