Had this on 2013-02-16 in Bowling Green, KY
A - Rudy-brown with a 3-finger tan, pillowy head that fades quickly leaving moderate lacing.
S - Fresh brown bread, fig, raisin, spiced apple. Pleasant but not terribly strong.
T - Rum cake, brown sugar, holiday spice, alcohol, a hard-to-describe-but-quite-tasty citrus-spicy-tang that makes this beer for me. The right amount of bitterness in the aftertaste.
M - Medium body and carbonation. Initially syrupy but this is cut quickly and it finishes dry.
O - Not as elegant as the Pannepot Grand Reserva I've been having on-tap this past week but it's quite good and as available just about everywhere. Don't know why it took me so long to try this but I'm glad I did.
