Pours a deep amber-copper with white head. Malty sweet aroma. Moderately malty sweet with an earthy hop character. Notes: on tap at the Union Oyester House, Jul ’17

Molasses and toffee aroma, clear copper brown color. Low head retention. Molasses, caramel, toffee, dried fruit, flavor. Crisp finish with a hint of licorice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear dark amber pour with fair white head. Nothing remarkable really. Just pretty standard fare. Kinda like a nut brown ale with a mild Earthy hop bitterness. Some tobacco and molasses notes maybe as well? Not bad, not amazing.

Reminiscent of a new castle brown but tastier on the palate. Beer is good but drinking it at the oldest restaurant in the US is what makes it better.

A beer made especially for this Boston landmark restaurant. Enjoyed two pints of this on tap. Copper amber color with a one finger head. The aroma is a sweet caramel malt. Very much with a toffee power and just a little bitter grass hop behind it. I was told this is brewed with molasses in honor of when the north end of boston had a tank full of the stuff flood the streets. Great malty beer that pairs well with the classic new england food served at this place. If you ever go there order this.

drpimento (3761) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Served with a smallish light tan head and a little lace. Color is a clear copper amber. Aroma is malt caramel toffee nutmeats roasty hint of butterscotch. Flavor’s much like that but with a bit of hop. Good body and carbonation. Good finish that is like flavor and of medium length. Session beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 28, 2009
Draft at Union Oyster House. Poured a murky brown color with orange highlights. The head was thick and tan with an orange tint. Some lace was left behind on the glass at the end. Diacetyl dominated nose. Smelled of buttery toffee, butterscotch, and distinct brown sugar. Medium bodied and delicately sweet. Lots of malty flavors that included the likes of distinct brown sugar, vanilla, and buttery toffee. A slight metallic note at the end detracted somewhat. Not bad if you don’t mind buttery toffee and butterscotch aromas and flavors.

This is an excellent brew I enjoyed with my buddy James King when I took him to lunch to thank him for allowing me to stay with him in Boston so that I could go to my best friend’s wedding in Gloucester, Mass. This brew was really outstanding with the meal. Very enjoyable and highly recommended if you ever get to go to the Union Oyster House in Boston, which I believe my waitress informed me, is supposed to be the oldest still operating restaurant in America.
