From old notes in 2012.

Appearance: pours a dark reddish brown color with a 1" head.

Smell: caramel, chocolate, and a bit of earthy bitterness is mild on the nose.

Taste: slight roasted malt tone with some toffee, molasses, milk chocolate, and a moderate bitterness create a pleasant beer. Alcohol is mildly noticeable.

Mouhtfeel: medium bodied. Lightly crisp to start, smoother at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste.

Overall: a nice beer to slowly sip and enjoy. Not overly exciting, just a solid beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark brown pour with 1-finger tan head. Light lace and light retention. Nice color.

Nose is light spice and caramel/molasses. Spice is understated, with the caramel dominating.

Taste is stronger caramel, a faint whiff of molasses, and nutmeg/cinnamon mix. Hops are lacking. Roast malt component in the finish.

Grainy, earthy feel. Very thick, without overpowering. Slightly oily. A bit unfinished, but not disappointing.

Overall, worth a shot but not one to go out of the way for.

The aroma brings a subtle spiciness on top of a base of deep caramel and nougat. Can't really smell any hops, perhaps they just blend with the spice potpourri that I am picking up.

Clear, though dark brown in color and topped with a nice off-white head that quickly dissipates.

Brown sugar and molasses dominate the flavor profile here. None of those spices present in the aroma are detected at all. A bit disappointing, but it's not bad at all.

Carbonation is on the high side and the body is medium to medium-full. It's quite drinkable at 7.7%
