Picked up a single a few weeks ago for $1.66. Bottled on 8/18/14.

Beer poured a reddish brown with a decent off white head on the initial pour.

Nose is caramel and dark fruits.

Taste is toasted malts with some toffee sweetness that is balanced perfectly by a healthy amount of hops.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and smooth.

Overall this is a very tasty brew. Recall having a sixer when vacationing in North Carolina several years ago. Definitely give it a shot if you like big malt based brews.
