UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Bottle bought on EBay! Much anticipation. Mildly disappointed. It is a nice beer, but not really for me as a big fan of the hop. This pours very dark brown from its iconic bottle crowned with a dense brownish head. The aroma is boozy and reminiscent of sherry. This continues in the taste, very malty, slightly sweet and plummy with a hint of cloves. It’s like a sherry-laced porter. Easy to drink for all its 10.2%. L_Lovecraft (695) - - OCT 16, 2017
