On tap in the Denver airport today
The pour is gorgeous, amber in color with a creamy off-white head with excellent retention and lacework. Clarity is pretty solid too. The nose is mellow with a blend of brown sugar, toast, caramel and an earthy and leafy hop character. A touch spicy as it warms up, the nose is pretty solid.
The palate opens mildly bitter with a combination of hop and burnt whole wheat toast bitterness before the brown sugar and a light molasses character come in. Mildly spicy, I swear I taste nutmeg, but it could be the combination of the alcohol and the bitterness. Drying on the finish with a grainy astringency, this medium-light bodied beer has a high level of carbonation . Solid stuff, I'm not sure I'd drink an awful lot, though.
