  • Poured clear into my favorite mason mug. Had a huge amount of off-white, frothy foam. Retention was okay but not what I expected from that much head as it eventually was less than a covering on the top of my beer. Not bad lacing.

    Lots of sweet malt on the nose and brown sugar/molasses. Some dark fruit like prune.

    Taste is smooth and caramel to start, while in the middle there is a blast of molasses and sweetness, that gives into some alcohol, plum, fast hit of bitterness, and maybe a touch of grainy malt. Some plum undertones in the minor a quick lasting aftertaste.

    Medium but creamy body with lower end of medium carbonation. I could have used a little more carbonation on this one.

    Definitely a big blast of malt in the glass. A very rich, interesting, and layered beer. Not as heavy as the deep color would suggest but definitely not light. A really good beer that should please most. Enjoy!
