Quite opaque, bronze/copper color. Minimal lacing/head.
Smells more malty than hoppy, you can detect a bit of peppery/spicy heat.
Perhaps a bit biased, as I'm enjoying this with arroz con pollo, but I believe this beer to be quite complex and well-balanced. The first wave is a little cinnamon sweet, you get the bready/toasty maltness, followed quickly with the warmth of the cinnamon and something like cardamom. The spice flavors seem well blended, like the beer has been aged or something. Lots of after-tastes.. ham/bacon, more spices/herbs, licorice perhaps.
Surprisingly light. Like the beer turns into vapor when it hits your tongue. Quite refreshing.
Overall, a solid entry into the spiced/herbal beers from Rogue. Worth a try.
