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

Drjohnrock (739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2014
Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Very dark brown/ruby hue, medium to strong malty aroma with a spicy note, flavor has attractive roasted malt and chocolate character but theres something artificial or chemical in the flavor, although it recedes as the glass warms. Good beer but could be better.

Great up front. Not over powering. A nice beer for a cold night. Would buy a case in a heart beat.

TATE (407) - Lubec, Maine, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby almost black with a thick tan head. Aroma is molasses and also maybe a bit like a merlot for some reason. The aroma is pretty powerful so I was expecting a pretty strong flavor. It does start out with big roasted and chocolate malt taste but is balanced well with hops and isnt overpowering.

RedSox2004 (1743) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Mahogany red with a light tan frothy head and moderate lace. Aromas of ripe fruit, roasted malt and a touch of butterscotch. Taste is that of roasted, light chocolate and ripe fruit up front, then a slight hop bitterness, more of the butterscotch, a hint of smoke/charcoal and a warming alcohol presence. Full body, lively carbonation, pillowy soft and smooth mouthfees, and caramel and lingering hop bitterness in the finish.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 24, 2014
A cola colored body with a tan head that had mild retention. Aroma was mostly caramel malts, there was a slight bread note to it. Some herbal hops. Flavor was similar. Carbonation seemed a little high to me, other wise it was a good beer.
