A - Pours a dark amber with a thin whie head. Nice amount of sticky lacing.

S - Sweet caramel malts, toffee, and brown sugar.

T - Follows the nose. Sweet caramel malts upfront followed by brown sugar, dark fruits, and bread. Finish has a light hop bitterness with some alcohol warmth.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Sticky dry finish.

O - A nice strong ale. Solid and enjoyable.
