Tastes burnt and roasty. There is a nice foamy head on it. More bitter than many brews, and yet, in winter, refreshing - kind of makes me...sentimental. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 12, 2006
I actually found this to be really enjoyable with my lunch. This is becoming one of more favorite styles as I get away from being a hope head and more into appreciating maltier darker styles. Dark brown with amber hues and some really lively carbonation that is a real joy to watch as it reacts to being poured. Sweet fruitiness and rich malt character, some spiciness and herbal black tea notes. Very nicely done MattShizzle (618) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2007

caramel, amber, clear, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed it and will look for in winters to come.
