COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is indeed a full-bodied Strong Ale; a Hybrid between a Porter and a Scottish Ale
This hearty winter warm ale is named in honor of American poet Henry Longfellow.

I remember the black wharves and the ships, and the sea tides tossing free. And the beauty and mystery of the ships, and the magic of the sea. My Lost Youth

FROTHINGSLOSH (7288) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with orange highlights and an enormous fluffy tan head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet and toasty with molasses, dark fruit and cocoa. The flavor was bitterish with tart dark fruits, chocolate, molasses, toasty malts and vanilla. An off flavor developed as it warmed. Long finish. Medium bodied but overcarbonated. Decent.
