4.4/5  rDev +4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

I am VERY surprised by this beer!

This pours a dark mahogany with sediment (floaties). It leaves a head which dissipates in a few minutes, but leaves a fluffy ring and a bit of an island.

The smell is sweet. Floral. Maybe a bit of pete. Some other sweetness.

The taste is quite rich. The alcolhol is quite well hidden, for the most forefront tastes are malts with fizzy hops. Vanilla. Honey. Cinnamon? The hops balance it well, very laid back but present.

The mouthfeel is nice and creamy.

The finish is nice and clean/dry, and the alcohol is noticed on the way down, but not in an unruly fashion.

The body is nice and light, yet rich. I do not like lighter body beers because they leave me yearning for something that doesn't exist. This is lightish, yet is very rich and full.

I do recommend finding this and giving it a try - I am buying a few more!

Update, actually for my own notes on 6/7/2013 - my wife didn't care for it, the spices were too strong and it had a bitter finish bite to her that made it difficult to drink. I did not edit anything from the original review in 2005, but I think it is a bit thinner than noted in my original review. I guess the rest is pretty much the same.
