Served in a snifter at Beer Market - Schaumburg.

The musical set here is surprisingly good... ...Anyway, this stuff pours a very dark, slightly murky midnight sienna topped by a half-finger of off-khaki foam. The nose comprises dates, light maple syrup, dark fruits, brown sugar, and a touch of rye bread. The taste brings in more of the same, that heapin' helpin' of dates really coming through and choking out all competitors. The body is a solid medium, bordering on hefty, with a light moderate carbonation and a generally smooth feel. Overall, a surprisingly solid beer, but one whose enjoyment is predicated on your taste for dates.

Serving type: on-tap

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

Type: on-tap pint
Glass: Pint
From: Ashley's in Ann Arbor
Price: $6.50

Appearance: Dark brown almost black. No head by time I got it, but a nice white lacing around the outside. almost opaque.

Smell: Malty goodness. sweet, some dark fruits, a touch of alcohol.

Taste: pretty sweet, strong malts, dark fruits and a nice touch of alcohol. good but could use just a little something more

Mouthfeel: medium to slightly heavier. just a tad sticky.

Overall: a well brewed beer but needs just one more tweak to make great. I like my old ales a little bit more character. This one could use maybe some earthy hops, some age in an oak barrel, or maybe a combination of hops and toffee. My second beer from greenbush. both were good, neither wowed me.

Serving type: on-tap
