Comes out of the bottle a clear, bubbly chestnut with a fairly thick and fluffy buff head. Malty aroma has a firm fruity note and a hint of hops. Flavor hangs hints of hops, honey and caramel on a malty/fruity core. Texture has average thickness, not much fizz. Tame this dragon!

16oz pint at the Alamo Drafthouse in Littleton, Colorado.

This beer appears a clear, dark bronzed amber hue, with one finger of loosely foamy, fizzy off-white head, which leaves some sparse, spidery lace around the glass as things quickly dissolve.

It smells of bready, crackery Vienna malt, a bit of dry lemon, and earthy, grassy hops. The taste is much sweeter, the malt gaining a Christmas cake quality, with some sugary fruitiness, earthy, leafy hops, and a mild warming alcohol.

The bubbles are quite soft and innocuous, the body a decent medium weight, and actually quite smooth. It finishes semi-sweet, biscuity in its malt, and a tad, just a tad, boozy.

A very pleasant amped up Oktoberfest, all components getting a fair shake, with the 18-proof booze behaving itself quite admirably. A nice accompaniment to the Beer Diaries' Colorado premiere.

Poured onto a balloon glass.

The beer is a crystal clear dark ruby copper. A cream colored froth sits on top until receding to a film with modest lines of lacing.

The aroma is immediately very fiery and spicy. Roasted malts are underneath the cinnamon fire spices.

The taste is aroma-like, but there is a woody, aged note to it. And again, very hot and spicy. The finish is candy-like. Almost sweet and sticky.

Mouthfeel is a bit heavy, with some candy stickiness.

Overall, really good, if not a bit too boozy. Love the cinnamon spiciness in this.
