Poured from the bottle into an English pint glass. Almost no head and little lacing.
Aromas is unique. Nothing like I have smelt in a beer before. Kind of like caramel rye bread and pumpernickel mixed together.
Tastes of sweet burnt caramel malts and pumpernickel bread due to some of the yeast flavor left behind. Has hints of hazelnut throughout and a earthy hop profile typical of darker beers.
Goes down ok. A tad watery of a mouthfeel for the flavor and a slightly unpleasant prickly feel in the mouth.
Overall, a good beer to pair with foods. I had the first few of the six pack alone then realized it was better with barbecue. However, the best combo was with pumpkin pie. The cinnamon clove goodness meshes perfectly with this beer. Blew my mind. Makes me wonder if just adding some spices in the brewing process could make a killer brew.

12 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 11/11/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear very dark reddish brown color with a small fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, chocolate, light roast, herbal, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, raisin, plum, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, plum, raisin, pear, biscuit, toast, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Minimal carbonation and medium bodied; with a very slick, moderately creamy, and fairly bready mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a decent old ale. Good balance and robustness of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and smooth to sip on for the abv. Could use more carbonation. Pleasantly enjoyable.
