3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of pine - not like an IPA pine but an actual pine tree. malty, mildly hoppy, with some mint and spruce/pine. Kind of interesting, actually. a mild, semi-bitter finish. Unique.
Lots of nutty and chocolate flavor. Deep and rich but not much of an aroma. Not a bad cold weather beer.

Copper colored good head retention. Aromas of spice, molasses, and spruce. The flavor is unique. It combines the aromas plus a clear herbal quality. Itzjerm (3112) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2017
A nice spruce tip beer. Very nice head. Nice body. Taste has a light spruce herbal pop to it. Nothing bad in this Brew. It shows what other buttering agents can be used. Nice. Aroma light spruce also.

Pours a clear dark brown iced tea color with a thin off white ring. Not much of an aroma. Very thin and watery with just a hint of malt flavor. Not much taste at all. Very plain and ordinary. With a name like spruce I was expecting at least some pine resin? djd07 (15543) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2016
