Had on-tap at the Main Street Pub in Bally, PA. Served in a snifter.

L: Dark brown pour with thick tannish head. Reasonable lacing.

S: Toasted grains and gingerbread. Molasses and spice.

T/F: Taste is sweet, a bit cloying with strong presence of molasses and brown sugar. Gingerbready and full bodied.

O: A bit sweet for my taste but as a homage to shoo-fly pie it's about what you would expect. Molasses dominates the flavor profile. Not one I can get into but glad I tried it.

Had this gem off the tap and I thought is was a solid porter. It poured a black opaque with white head that left some lacing. The scent and taste had a nice earthy base with hints of coffee and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel was medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall I felt is was a great porter.

12 oz bottle poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Appearance
Deep mahogany with 1 finger of off-white head. Excellent clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Root beer, molasses, licorice, and milk chocolate.

Taste
Black licorice, molasses, and Birch beer. Light caramel and milk chocolate. Hints of spruce.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, and semi-dry with a light bitterness.

Overall
Imperialize this and then we'll talk. ;)
