650ml bottle @ $4.99. Been in the fridge for nearly 2 months, finally decided to break it out.
Nice frothy head with good retention, hazy, red(ish) brown.... good looking.
The smell of my mom's (God rest her soul) spice cabinet, vanilla, clove, cinnamon, ginger, all that blended together.
Wow...taste is almost like a straight shot of vanilla or almond extract..not too sure about this one. On the one hand I like it but on the other hand it's like something artificial going on and too much of it. Aftertaste, although not unpleasant, is not exactly pleasant.
Good mouthfeel and drinkability.
An intresting brew albeit one that sends me mixed messages, something seems unbalanced....However, the more I drink the better it gets...@ 6.2%ABV and 650ml, that would be expected.. 2 or 3 of these suckers and it could be the finest brew in the world. At least it isn't sicky sweet.
