C-. Tasted 8-4-19, just didn?t hold up well. Had one 5-22-22 that was bottled 5-21-14 and I liked it better (pretty sure this one had been stored cold). B+. Smoke aroma and caramel flavor, still clean.

One of the 12 beers in the Beer Camp Across America collaboration pack. Had on draft at beer camp philly as well as in bottle in the pack. Ebony in color with a foamy khaki head and strong espresso mocha and dark chocolate aromas. Smooth and complex this beer is leaps and bounds above the rest in the pack. Inviting and warming, it's an imperial dark ale made with love. Layers of flavors from caramel And toffee to raisins figs and coffee. Awesome enjoyable beer. Brewed in collaboration with Bell's Brewery, need to find more from them. My favorite of the 12 pack. Sad to hear it's a one off. profile - December 30, 2014
