11.2 oz undated bottle served in a snifter
In the glass this beer is a fairly dark nearly opaque brown, the head starts out thick and rocky but falls to a thin layer of tight tan bubbles which throw lace all over the glass. The smell is rich fruitiness and malt with a bit of spice, a hint of alcohol and maybe a touch of an earrthy yeast tone as well. At first the taste this is a bit brash, spicy from hops and alcohol with the malt and fruit underneath. As the beer warms it tends to smooth out and blend a bit better and the malt comes out front and is it ever malty. There is a lot of dark grain maltiness reminiscent of dark bread with chocolate, under those there is a touch of what seems like brown sugar and coffee. When warmer this beer is nice and full in the mouth however it leaves surprisingly little aftertaste just a bit of drying and quick hint of peppery alcohol. A very good beer, nothing strikes me as amazing, however, everything seems to come together so well to make this quite enjoyable to drink.
