This beer is what I stand in line overnight in the middle of December in Michigan for. Thick and dark with so many wonderful flavors playing on the palate. It smells of honey, chocolate, molasses, and soy sauce. The flavors are a perfect balance between the base beer and wood, mushroom, straw, bittersweet chocolate, roasted notes, and dark fruit. Simply one of my favorites.
