Poured into a goblet.

Bright cola, amber body, only a slight ecru fizz that disappears fast.

Spicy and sweet nose. Pepper, fig, raisin, rye bread, and earthy.

Peppery and spicy right away. Then some fig and slight raisin. Quickly morphs to big rye bread and earthy note. Not much finish.

Watery and a little flat. Dry, but a quickly fading finish.

I really like the yeasty and sweet nose. However, the flavors on this are too spicy and not big enough for some better versions of this style. A good beer, not great.
