Cannot remember where I picked this one up but it has been in the basement for a while so I figured I better give it a run. Outstanding looking beer, hazy brown with a fluffy head that stuck around grabbed the glass, stunning. Good aroma but not great. Flavor was great, tasty and smooth, did a good job of masking the alcohol which gives bonus points overall. The flavor improved as it warmed. It was a very good beer that I enjoyed very much and would purchase again depending upon the cost which I simply do not remember.

A: The beer is very hazy amber brown in color. It poured with a finger and a half high beige colored head that died down but has good retention properties and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of candi sugar and caramel are present in the nose along with notes of yeast and hints of dark fruits.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that candi sugars aren't noticeable and there is instead malty sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Although it seems a bit malty for the style, this beer is rather easy to drink because it masks any traces of alcohol from the taste.
