A: Pours a charming dark amber hue, highly similar to a mahogany characteristic. A modest eggshell white head which has just as modest retention.
S: A delectable sweet, fruity makes up the foundation of the aroma. This is followed by a toasty, caramel essence which shapes into a respectably complex concoction.
T: The malts are much more reserved in the taste than in the smell. Surprisingly there is still a hint of hop bitterness, but it does well to remind you that you are drinking a dark lager. The toasty aspect comes out superbly. There is also an impressive masking of the ABV.
M: The carbonation is astounding. It provides an exceptional catalyst to supply the mouth with all the flavors. A slight Jekyll and Hyde effect occurs. The malts originally leave a subtle sticky, chewy feel, but after a while it seems to drain out the mouth. Resulting in an equivalent dryness on the tongue.
O: Notably unique brew that is a must try if available. This contributes an enjoyable twist to the style, and it does well to deliver an exceptionally easy to drink 8% beer.
Serving type: growler

Served in a snifter.
Appearance: Clear red amber with slights haze from the pour. Off-white head maybe 1/3" with a hard pour and light bubbles to its frame.
Smell: Very light maple hop scent. Comes and goes.
Taste: Can you say awesome? Very good relaxing bitterness offset with a bit of sweetness to it. Has maple syrup likeness to it that is very addicting and perfect for this weather we're having.
Mouth: Medium body, feels light with averse at best stickiness.
Overall: i haven't read a review yet for this beer but I can see the reviews being a over the place. Definitely more of a warm weather beer, really doesn't need tweaking and honestly I would be glad to buy another bottle. Salud.
