Dark amber color, somewhat cloudy. Big slightly off-white head that was creamy and long lasting.
Fairly little aroma - a little vanilla sweetness and a little peppery spiciness.
Complex malty sweetness with a hint of bubble gum or cotton candy. Finishes with the lingering candy sweetness, but sweetness never becomes completely overpowering. Very slight oxidation character as warms. Less sweet and more spicy in a 2011 retasting.
Medium body with medium/high carbonation. Very creamy mid-tongue, and minimal alcohol warming.
A reasonably nice beer. Drinkable, but with time the candy sweetness became all that I was tasting. This one-dimensionality would get tiresome.
