16 ounce pint - North River Tavern in Roswell, Georgia.

Appearance: Amber-hued body, some haze present, with a slim, near-white head. Coating lace on the descent.

Smell: Moderately toasty, lightly sweet-scented maltiness, a light fruitiness, fragrant spice notes.

Taste: Toasty, bready malts. Slight brown sugar character, sweetness. Estery fruitiness. A bit tangy. Spices and just a little, little bit of pepper flavor and only a slow accumulation of heat. Also, a little pinch from the alcohol. Drying, lightly fruity and spicy on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: An odd, not altogether enjoyable mish-mash of flavors.

Pours a medium brown with a hint of amber. Healthy head that retains well and leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Smell is malty sweet yet somewhat earthy. Taste is spices and herbs up front with a strong brown sugar aftertaste that lingers well and finishes the beer nicely. Great combo of flavors.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

LOOK: Deep gold, bordering amber. Pours clear, lots of lace.

SMELL: Sweet toffee, caramel.

TASTE: Bittersweet upfront with a dose of earthy hops, candy sugar sweetness from lots of malt. Nice hops, well rounded bitterness , hides the alcohol.

FEEL: Medium bodied, drinks easy.

OVERALL: Nice beer, the bartender described this as an very old style of beer that didnt really fall into a specific style. Judging from the taste, this is quite a good strong ale.
