Good. But a little bitter for my palate. Pours pretty. Good mouthfeel. But a bit too bitter. Bought a bottle at the Chatham cheese shop and drank with some nice cheese.

The guy who reviewed this below is certainly confused. There is a lot going on in this beer. Solid caramel, chocolate malt backbone with an assertive hop bitterness and aroma. It i pours a beautiful dark amber out of the bottle, as long as you leave the yeast behind as it says on the label. There is so much good with this beer, it is definitely my favorite hoppy ale that is not an IPA or pale ale.

First couple sips are all hops (not a bad thing) slowly gives way to a rich smooth maltiness with the hops in the background. Mouthfeel is so smooth and creamy. Could have it every day. Beautiful winter beer.
