Comments: Okay, now *this* is totally different.  A mead more than a beer (hence the name: “bee nectar”), this beverage pours out reddish-brown with a thick head.  It has a fruity aroma with a chocolate cherry taste.  The mouth feel is syrupy, and the overfeel experience is delicious.

Comments: A solid dark brown beer poured with no head.  The aroma is chocolately and it has a roasted flavor with a caramel aftertaste.  It has a medium mouthfeel and looks a little flat after sipping for a while.  Not bad, and definitely something different from the typical craft beers being churned out these days.

Comments: The house beer at the Shake Shack pours a beautiful amber color with lots of bubbles. The smell is sweet with fresh grains and the flavor is a malty caramel that sits somewhere between a frat house and summer in the Adirondacks.  Yummy, and good with a shroomburger.
