Had on tap at Fat Head's in a snifter. Pours a hazy, darker brown, with a thin, almost non-existent head. Served colder than it should be.

Smell is fruity and sweet, with raisin, banana and spice notes.

Taste is mildly malty, with banana, raisin and fig notes, and hints of cloves. Improves as it warns.

Medium bodied, with a clean feel.

A decent brew, it is one you should order and let sit to warm to fully enjoy. Certainly a nice enough brew to sip on as my growler of Headhunter is being poured!

This beer is a dark red-brown color with a ruby flare at the edges. It is opaque simply due to its dark color. It grows a tan head to about half a finger with reasonable stay, and some lacing sticks in light patches and heavy spotting.
There's lots of fruit in here along with gentle spiciness and it has a sweet character overall. It develops dryness as it goes, though, while the spices and dark fruits integrate with a bit of tobacco leaf and a mild woodiness. Malts are bready and dry, balancing notes of caramel, raisin, and candi sugars. The dryness leads a bit yeasty into the finish.
The body is medium but cut through by a crispness that's fairly hard. The feel ends up ever so slightly leaning semi-sweet but very close to even. It gets a little smoother underneath as it goes.

Dark brown with a reddish hue and a fluffy, uniform puck of a tan head on top.

Soft banana and clove on the nose.

Banana raisin nut bread, with some spices, and a little boozy heat.
