"Best by November 2015"; drank 9/5/15 @ the Yarchives.

Brown/purple appearance.

A rough pour yielded a huge khaki head; frothy lace.

Coffee, caramel & pickle juice notes in the nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Caramel & pickle juice flavors, in equal measure. Tough to drink; I couldn't get through 12oz. I've had my last.

This ruddy brown ale smells of toasted malt and chocolate and tastes of dark chocolate, toffee, and malt. There is something missing in the backbone of this brew. It's a little off and a shows a little flat. A little too heavy on the chocolate in toffee in my opinion which drowns out the essence of the brew. Medium bodied. This beer finishes leaving me thirsty and I think thats because of the added flavors which compliment less and dominate this drink.

On tap at Rattle Hum, NYC. Deep, opaque richness in color w/quickly dissapating head which leaves a slight lacing araoma, while chilled, is alluring, as it bodes of rich toasty malts with a hint of vanilla. Nicely balanced flavor. Doesn't so much hit all the points as alludes to them. This is more a temptation than a thing.
