On tap at the Lancaster Brewing Company at Plum and Chestnut. (Thanks to my fiance' who lives several blocks away)

Poured a dark brown with a small sized off white head.

Great aroma of a light Chocolate roast, coffee and caramel.

Tastes of coarse chocolate, slight sweet molasses, honey, and toffee. Some lacing left on the glass as I drank it. Not an over powering alcohol taste, so it can sneak up on you.

I felt the Shoo-fly pie taste in the molasses note of this beer. This beer seems hard to find at times, so if you get a chance drink one and you will see why.

Well worth it.

Poured from tap at Capones in Norristown into a standard pint glass.

A: A dark brown color with an off white one finger head. Not real thick as light does shine through when you hold the glass up. Full ring lacing but it does not really last.

S: Biscuit bready malt with sweet molasses. No real hops nose to it.

T: Sweetness up front with a bready biscuit malty flavor. The molasses and brown sugar sweetness comes in the middle of the beer with some roasted qualities to it. Finish is really different and very dry with a slight hop bite to it. This beer really has some of the same flavors I detect in some of their other maltier beers (Hop Hog, Milk Stout).

M: I thought mouthfeel was medium at best. It was a dry finish that seemed to evaporate pretty quickly. No trace of the alcohol.

D: Fairly high. These were enjoyable and the abv is low enough to have a few.

Overall a decent but not outstanding beer. A really cool concept to localize it to PA, but just something that didn't knock my socks off.

On tap at Capones. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocloate, lighter roastiness, and caramel. Tastes of chocolate, molasses, roast, and caramel. Some lacing left on the glass. I love Shoo-fly pie, but just didn't see it in this one.
