Appearance - Of course I love the packaging, as well as the name. I would like to know the story behind the name, but I haven't Googled it or anything yet. Anyway, to the actual ratable criteria of a beers' presentation...Pours an awesome amber/copper color with a thick pillowy white head with excellent retention and some lacing as well. Pretty spectacular appearance, I like it a lot.
Smell - Big breads, a little hop and spices, and a sweetness from I will assume the malt character. Complex, nice.
Taste - The hops in this one are very subdued, especially for what the style traditionally calls for as far as hoppiness is concerned. The sweetness is certainly the prime mover here, although it is not too sweet. Bready, malty character. This is an exceptionally tasty brew.
Mouthfeel - Nice and heavy, goes down smooth and creamy. I really appreciate a good, smooth finishing beer, and this is one. There is a hint of lingering sweetness in the aftertaste that I like too.
Overall - This is a good beer, recommended to try. I do not believe I have much experience with this style, but this is a good beer. If this is indicitive of the style, I think I will like it a lot! Check this one out
