Ok - Good. Tastes like a spiced "Dead Guy" ale.

Pours a dark cloudy amber with a medium beige head, moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet dark caramel malt, toffee, yeast and earthy pine and herbal hops. Taste is sweet caramel malt, yeast, toffee with some spicy earthy herbal hops bitterness on the end for balance. Palate is a medium body, smooth with good carbonation. Finishes with a combination of dark caramel malts, yeast and earthy hops bitterness, has a nice nutty like lingering flavor, Overall nicely balanced and tasty brew.
