Bought a 6 pack at Specs in Round Rock for 8.99...quite a bargain I must say.

Poured a very deep amber/dark brown in color...a bit of red... with a thin off-white head. Speckled spider-web lacing on my pint glass. Nice.

Lovely smell of caramel, some vanilla, and a lil bit of peat. Also getting some spice and a bit of butter scotch and booze. I like.

Big time malty sweetness coming through...some caramel and roasted coffee, and a hint of booze. This is a well crafted bastard all right. Smooth and syrupy; just the right amount of carbonation make this one a real winner.

I'm not a normal drinker of the wee heavy style...but I really enjoyed this one. A great price for a sixer makes this one a no brainer when i want a break from IPAs and stouts. Just another fine beer from a great brewery. Give it a try folks.
