Review from notes. Poured into a clean, clear glass at the
brewery.

A Fluffy light brown head over a mahogany translucent body. Good look. 4.0

S Sweet malt goodness that I return to several times to smell and enjoy. I really enjoy the smell of this beer and beers in this style. 4.0

T Great example of a sweet malt forward beer. This is sweet goodness in a pint glass. 4.0

M Appropriately thick, syrupy, delicious. 4.0

D/O Good despite the healthy, high ABV and relative "bigness" of this beer. 4.0

Notes: It was a close call between this and the really great Jungle Juice as far as what I might be bringing home in my Fat Head's growler. I ended up opting for the Jungle Juice but this certainly would have been a good choice.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub in Cleveland. 30 ibu beer that has a ligt mahogoney coloured body and is lacey. Fruity but also noticeably boozy. Not up to the style though a fair beer. Just a pint in the summer is too much.Above average mouthfeel with sugar and caramel, and served at the right temeperature and carbonation. Worth a try.
