Bought at Wegman's in Collegeville.
I actually had this once before at a Wegman's in King of Prussia.
What amazes me is that experience was different than this one in a big way.
I remembered thoroughly enjoying it back then, probably September 2012.
That night I drank straight out of the bottle.
Tonight I poured into a Nonic.
It's a very dark pour, orange/brown and hazy. 1-2 finger hear, minimal lacing.
The malt scent coming forth with a strong caramel scent AND flavor.
Almost too sweet.
Mouthfeel has a bite to it. Maybe a bit too much carbonation.
Slightly nutty but more caramel than anything else.
Did I mention caramel?
There is a hop presence that lingers throughout but not overly memorable.
Overall not a terrible effort but my guess is maybe this bottle was older than the last one I had, which may be leading to the aged malt taking over the hops?
