Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip. This was my wife's Christmas present to me ... really looking forward to this one.
Appearance: rich, deep amber-brown hue with a relatively haze-free body and a strong effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy tan foam. Quite nice.
Smell: sweet malt with a rich caramel character and a bright yet not overpowering tartness. Under this is a woody, vanilla-ey aroma which really fills out the whole thing. Complex and enjoyable.
Taste: caramel malt, vanilla wood and lactic tartness all hit me at once. The light fruitiness works well here. Overall quite good, but the rich complexity of the aroma isn't quite here; tartness takes over and the flavor is a bit imbalanced. Good, but perhaps not great.
Mouthfeel: light body with a light carbonation. There's some nice activity here, but it is neither creamy nor brightly effervescent. Not bad, but could be a lot better.
Overall: this beer could be better in some areas, but overall I am enjoying it a whole helluva lot. I'd love to have it again.
