Maybe South Street just saves their best experiences for the higher gravity beers but from here on out the flight became much more interesting. Skip right to this part of the menu when doing a flight if you are pressed for time.
Aroma / Appearance - A reddish mahogany base rests below a layer of crisp white film. Caramel, red vines, and malt forward Hershey’s kisses invite one to savor the moment. The only oddity is the slight hint of a balloon just prior to being inflated at the local party store.
Flavor / Palate - Red vines dipped in peanut butter refresh the palate. Nutella carries to a clean well rounded finish that slowly warms the palate. This might not be a remarkable old ale. However it offers enough depth to make it a solid winter warmer.
Draft at South Street. Clear golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of caramel, dark fruit, light toast. Tastes of dark fruit, caramel, malt, light booze, oak. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Travlr (25496) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2015

On tap at the brewpub: Clear copper orange with a stringy off-white head. Has a sweet toasty caramel nose with some light piny hop notes. Starts with good toasty caramel malty sweetness and a touch of light fruity complexity and earthy resiny bittering hops before a bittersweet finish. A pretty good brew that falls on the lighter side of old ales. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2009
