Pours clear dark brown color with small head. Aroma of fruits, hops, caramel, dark berries, lemon and spice notes. Flavour of ripe fruits, malts dark berries and hops. At times feels like a black ipa, weird but good.
Pours a deep amber with a thick body and a nice off-white head. Nose is pruny hops with a light raspberry syrup kick. Flavor is a rush of prune, hops and strawberry with finish of nutty wood syrup. Lingering mouthfeel. Tasty. Steverus0 (263) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Nice and caramel, with a rich frothy head and a subtle mouthfeel. A great winter beer in the celebration style. Light on hops, rich in malts and best paired with a fire, a book, and a warm blanket during a snow storm.
