On-tap at the Happy Gnome: Deep chestnut with a dark bloodish undertone; cap was thin and instantly gone from the top leaving a thin ring and minimal gooey thick stringed lacing.

Aroma is malty but a bit thin and lightly apparent with a molasses squirted toffeeness thats darkly sweet with a touch of peet and root beer.

Taste is malty thick and darkly set with a molasses-like toffeeness. Fruityness is set in dark tonality with some accompanying hints of dates, dark cherry, rummyness, starfruit, and is quite reminiscent to a dopplebock. Thick and rich with silky soothing taste and thickness.

Speaking of...the feel is chewy, thick, silky rich, smooth, and an easy texture thats malty and rounded in fullness. The front is relaxing and picks up ground from there building a bigger malty finish with a pinch of cocoa adding to the malty sweetness.

Drinkable and then some. Quite a smoothly malty, rich treat. A nice brew by Rush River.

Served In: Pint Glass

Pours a deep clear copper with a slight reddish hue and a big foamy tan head. The foam slowly settles and leaves the walls of the glass coating in sticky lacing.

Smooth and slightly sweet malt aroma. Touch of light creamy caramel and a nice hint of spice. Hint of toffee and a touch of allspice.

Smooth malty body with a bit of caramel and a nice hint of toffee. Medium sweetness and a touch of spice at the end.

Served In: Snifter
