I had a few of these pours at the brewpub and they were really pleasant exercises.

The pour rocked a deep and rich brown with a decent head that jizzed off lacing to a decent extent.

The nose was light and wafty and filled with brown sugar and cream and just the requisite amount of bog funk. Rich and boastful. Very appealing.

The taste was slick and tasty with plenty of brown sugar and caramel to go around as well as the smoky peat ambiance that defines the style.

The mouthfeel remained light and refreshing even under the hefty tones that proliferated. This beer has a creamy finish that would make Bob proud.

The drinkability was superb. This beer is an example of a highly drinkable beer that deserves respect. I believe the abv was advertised at greater than 8%, however it was just a pleasure to consume. I was not disappointed.

My first trip to Jamesport was nothing less than a memorable and enjoyable one. The fact that this brew pub does not distribute bottled packages makes me feel lucky to be able to partake as the product is very respectable. I am a fan. If ever, oh ever you should happen through lovely Ludington be sure and treat yourself.

Suprised to see a 7.9% offering in the beginning of summer. Pours a very dark and opaque brown. Very little head present with very mild carbonation.. Flavor is sweet, malty sweet, nose is big and sugary, feel is alcohol, warming all around. Finish is very long and sweet, this is ideal for the cooler months.
