12 oz. bottle poured into le poured tulip glass.
A: Poured a cloudy copper color with a little less than a fingers worth of head that settles to a small ring with a touch of lacing.thin head that disappears quickly.
S: Big cinnamon, with touches of cloves and sweet malts. I'm also getting a little unripe banana and yeast.
T: Wow strong sweet notes right up front lots of cinnamon with hints of sweet caramel malt and a little unripe banana just like the smell. Then I'm getting a quick hit of tart fruit maybe green apple?? ... It is quite a wild mix flavors. I'm getting a little pepper and clove in the aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied with a little stickiness.
O: Wow very complex flavors mixed in here with a wonder balance of sweet and tart.... A fantastic beer. At 7% ABV this is a one or two and done.. Just sit back and enjoy the ride, let this one warm up and little and it just gets better and better... Very much worth looking for.
