Almost a rusty sort of orange with pale red and light brown highlights, this beer's dark color combines with a little haze to bring it very near opacity. The head is a thin, bubbly layer of nearly white foam that keeps at least that, ringing the glass where the beer initially settles and following with spotting.
The nose offers a nicely spiced bouquet with pretty much all the cinnamon and nutmeg one could want without giving too much. There's a hint of crust and a slight inkling of tartness under it.
The flavor brings more of the tartness out, pretty much even with the spicing. Just a ghost of vegetal flesh lies underneath, and the malts do make for a somewhat crusty (but not exactly dry) note. Some dryness does come in with esters and the tang.
The body is an equally crisp and smooth one in a body that starts medium and, while remaining there, drifting toward light as it goes. It starts with little action on the tongue in terms of dryness, which comes into the middle along with something that's not quite acidic but feels similar, though light.
