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

Bottle with a BB date of 3/18/14.

Poured into a Town Hall pint glass this brew has a thin finger of off-white head topping a clear copper brew.

Aromas of toasted malt dominate. A little cinnamon and sweet notes detected.

Taste is similar, very malty with plenty of sweetness with hints of warm spices (nutmeg and cinnamon).

Mouthfeel is smooth with a bit of carbonation zing in the finish. Really smooth stuff. Daddy like. Well done for 7.5%

Overall this beer is malty, sweet and simple, but damn its pretty easy to drink and goes down smooth.
