Nice looking but could have used a bit more head and lacing. Color was a pretty amber-brown color, clear and clean looking. Rising bubbles.
Smells of brown sugar, yeast, spices and some malt, with just a tinge of alcohol. Really smelled good to me, I kept sniffing the glass over and over.
Tastes absolutely wonderful. Sweet and fruity, spicy, roasted malts and a touch of earthy hops are the flavors that come to mind. A very complex and tasty brew, I really like this beer!
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, with flavors that dance across the tip and down the sides of the tongue. Moderate carbonation isn't overpowering, but also isn't flat. Just a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste.
Definitely a drinkable beer that I'll be buying on a regular basis from now on. Since many of my sessions are after work, at home, consuming around three beers, this is just fine for those nights.
Rating and review slightly adjusted on 25sep10. Taste slightly lowered after trying more of this style. Still a top quality beer tho for any style, and within the style.
