This has been around a while. Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Brown coloured body, lacey. The aroma is nutty and rootbeerish. Licorice taste, some chocolate malt, brown sugar. Average mouthfeel, suitably carbonated. Decent drinkability.Run-o-the-mill brown.

Strong aroma is malty with a woody note and a substrate of molasses. It pours a dark, barely transparent brown with a fairly thick but not persistent light tan head that still leaves some good lacing. Malty flavor has a firm woody note and a hint of molasses. Texture is rather fizzy and just a bit on the thin side. Now if only they sold it in quantities other than a whole blooming liter--
