I'm loving this beer, so I had to review it.

An appealing, chocolate brown color, with tons of head that eventually calmed down to nice lacing. Very nice, bready, well-rounded taste, with sweet malt as well as roast and sour tones. I find it very inviting. The mouthfeel is agreeably smooth and substantial. Did I say I was pleasantly surprised?

Enjoyed this very much
Beautifully dark and auburn highlights, little lacing
On the nose it's almost like a glazed doughnut, really giving warning that the beer was going to be sweeter than anticipated at purchase.
Taste is for the sweet tooth. Chocolate, caramel, bready malt. It strikes me as a chocolate chip cookie with some honey drizzled on it. It's for me, I would understand someone else not liking it.
The mouthfeel was perfect for the sweetness, this is a beer I would serve for dessert and I would serve to friends.
I had this as an after dinner beer and it was perfect. It's not your your 1st quarter Monday night football beer, but it is marvelously made and beautifully unique for an evening finisher.
