6 pack of 12oz bottles picked up in North Conway, NH.
Whenever I travel I seek out a beer or two that I can not get here in Mass. I sipped on a couple of these by the fire, and it was a welcome break from drinking Guinness. The pour is dark brown with an off-white head. The flavor is cashews, brown sugar, and a spicy alcohol finish. The hops are present as it warms up a bit. I was expecting Double Bag or better, but this falls short with a thin body. The flavors are decent and it is very drinkable.
One of my favorite beers of all time is Tuckermans original signature beer. This one is okay. This batch is over carbonated but that happens given that they carbonate in bottle or at least they used to it. The alcohol flavor stands out on this so it could be a little more balanced. Malty notes as well but again they are second to the alcohol.

Bottle at home, thanks to Leighton for this one. A light hazed amber orange coloured pour with a fine off white head. Aroma is big plastic hockey puck, nutty malts, apple,. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation, rounded. Flavour is composed of semi sweet nutty malts, little dried fruit, raisin, little age and wood in the finish.

Bottle shared in London - sourced from somewhere in the northeast. Pours clear reddish brown with a creamy, white head. The nose has some leafy hops, lightly toasted grains. Light sweet flavour with more lightly toasted grains, just a faint suggestion of tang, some dried berries, low bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. OK finish, more of the same, some leaves and dry, lightly toasted grainy bread, vague citrus notes. So so overall. dfinney23 (3424) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Deep, clear amber with a finger of creamy tan head. Malty, as expected, with a distinctly bitter finish. Quick3Beers (1517) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 6, 2016
Pours a brown with a thick white head, rather large bubbles. Brown sugar and dough aroma, similar flavor nice noble hop profile, a little spicy yeast. Good beer. tfontana (1185) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Bottle from Hannaford Raymond NH. Aroma is yeasty dough with a little bit of leather. Appearance is a pretty reddish amber with mild haze (from live yeast), nice sparkle and two-finger off-white creamy foam head. Taste is mostly mild malty sweetness over mild bitter with a bit of yeast still present that gives a little unfinished quality to it. Palate is light to medium bodied with thin texture, lively carbonation with a little sting to the tip of the tongue and very mild bitter finish. Overall, this beer is true to its style but doesn’t do so as boldly and richly as the description would suggest. Pretty average.
