A beautiful warmer start to finish. One of the best I've ever had in this category.

Grabbed a 12pk at my local Hannaford for an unbeatable price of $12.99.

Pours a medium amber with a little cloudiness and formed a two finger head. Feels nice with a little alcohol bite. Finishes smooth, a lot smoother than the front end would suggest. You first taste dark malt with a sweet finish of brown sugar. For a minute I thought it was a Brown Ale. Overall I'm very pleased with shipyards take on this. Very good beer for a style that's sometimes overlooked. Great beer. Well done shipyard!

Red with gold throughout and a smallish tan head sitting atop. Head retention is poor but leaves good lace.
Smell is weak, nearly non-existent.
Taste is a good step up in that it has flavors. Roast malt, biscuit, wheat.
Medium bodied, lightly effervesced. No warming though.

This Beautiful Looking Full Bodied, Malty Masterpiece pours a Gorgeous Amber Brown and falls into the Hearty Ale Category..... It would Pair PERFECTLY with a Twice Baked Potato and a Thick Juicy Steak.....Yet Another Success Story from SHIPYARD Brewing Co.
