P: Dark mahogany body with a small fast fading taupe head. Slippery lacing that slides along the glass.

S: Super bready, gingerbread, vanilla wafers, cinnamon, clove, black strap molasses, figs, dark chocolate, oats, faint bubble-mint gum and hints of burnt hair.

T/M: Taste follows the nose but brings more chocolate malted balls, molasses, and slightly smoked wood. Vivacious and medium bodied that finishes semi dry.

O: Really good beer that surprisingly comes in a six pack. Love that! The aroma is on point and the taste delivers as well. I would regularly drink this but the price is a tad steep. However, you get what you pay for. Cheers!

Pour is dark brown with red edges and a fizzy tan head. Nose is mostly molasses and notes of coffee bean and roast. Taste is more sticky molasses and strong roasted malt notes. Some cooked brown sugar through a finish that thins a bit. Medium body with assertive carbonation thinning in the finish.

Picked up at my local KS bottle shop. 12 oz bottle with the most adorable label ever! The label mentions honey, molasses, and flaked oats as adjuncts with Munich, chocolate, and wheat for the malt bill. Looks/sounds awesome. Poured into a Tallgrass Brewing cervoise glass.

Appearance: Poured down the side produced two fingers of sudsy tan head with a clear, dark walnut body.

Smell: Lots of dark roasted malts. Like a crusty black bread crust. Very nutty, with notes of oat and some coffee. Finishes with fruity some lager yeast.

Taste: More of those awesome dark malty notes up front. Toasted oats, bread crust, some coffee, nutty brown malts. Maybe a bit of molasses. Some slight bitterness with that sulfry lager character. Very nice bready finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium light feel. Smooth.

Overall: A solid ale with a really fun label. While I didn’t get much in the way of honey or molasses the dark malty notes were fantastic. I am not too familiar with lagers, but the lager yeast wasn’t too prominent over the malts, which I really enjoyed. Recommended to all fans of malty lagers. Enjoyed while several ounces of snow accumulated outside my door.
