A little too sweet for my liking.

Reddish dark amber with a dense two finger head that slowly settled to a thick cap. Almost a solid sheet of lacing is left down the glass.

Heavy caramel and toffee aroma. Some floral and pine notes from the hops. Alcohol is detectable.

Surprising amount of strong yeast esters in the flavor as well as a touch of butterscotch. The malt and the hops did not really compliment each other. The caramel does not pair well with the pine flavored hops and the alcohol.

Big body and creamy texture. Very nice carbonation.

Has some good elements but the flavor was a letdown.

Served in a tulip glass at Farmhouse Tavern.

Haven't seen or heard anything of this before looking over the bar menu here, so I figured what the hell, right? It pours a hazy sienna-amber topped by a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises maple syrup, molasses, ruby red grapefruit zest, deep caramel, and rye bread. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some light nutmeg, a pinch of cinnamon, and a heaping helping of blunt sweetness and booziness. The body is a hefty-leaning medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a lightly chewy finish. Overall, a small beast of a beer, one whose booziness and rough edges keep it from achieving any sort of true greatness. Still, a nice, complex sipper for this early evening...
