Growler filled at the Green Growler Grocery in Croton-on Hudson, NY

Pour is dark auburn, nice dark tan/mocha head, a slow fader, but leaves a minor collar and lacing.

Chocolate and malty sweetness on the nose.

Dense malt notes, loads of caramel, vanilla, milk chocolate and honey come to mind. Sweet but not cloying. Scotish to the malty bone, and quite enjoyable.

On the heavy side of the mouthfeel, body scale, and lower carbonation then typical.

Well worth a try. More quality brew from Long Island upstart Spider Bite. I've been quite impressed with this newer places offerings.

A - Pours is dark brown with a cola consistency. Slight creme colored foam, and minimal carbonation.

S - Smells of whiskey come from the glass, along with a faint smell of molasses.

T - Has a refined taste with a slight acidic burn at the end.

M - Feels a bit more potent than needed, but went well with dinner.

O - Interesting take on the style, and decent enough to try again.
