Sampled at the Brew Pub - Tampa FL
Appearance - Slightly hazy brown colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for 3-4 minutes.
Smell - Chocolate, malts, honey
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel mixed with malts and some honey. There is also some nice chocolate flavours and some raisins and an earthiness. It ends with a semi-sweet chocolatey aftertaste.
Overall - A really good beer that I'd be happy to drink again anytime. The brewery has some of this set aside in barrels being aged.. I'm sure the result will be amazing.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle courtesy of johnyb, thanks again!
Pours a dark brown color with a nice rocky tan head. Kind of surprised when I poured it, was expecting a more lighter gold color.
Aromas are of cocoa, earthiness, and light cedar.
Taste is certainly unique. Light nuttiness, sweet honey, cola, crisp and clean with a mineral like bite on the finish.
Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, light body.
Overall? Definitely an odd duck. Well worth trying, but dang getting through this whole bottle is going to take some time.
