[Best served in a Trappist glass]
The pour was a medium copper in color with an average sized off white foamy head that was mostly lasting and had some what fair lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted caramel malt, a light resin hop and a sweet yeast with a hint of apricot, banana, dried fruit and some spice (cinnamon and maybe a little nutmeg).
It tasted very light, sweet and malty with notes of sweet dried fruit and banana in the beginning and finished moderately sweet with a tinge of bitterness that had a nice malty feel to it with notes of caramel and spices at the end. Although I would have liked the flavor to last a nice long while, it only lasted a short time.
Mouthfeel was light to medium bodied and watery yet somewhat creamy in texture with a flat carbonation.
Overall a very enticing brew, but anything from this brewer seems to taste well.
