12 oz. bottle from John's Marketplace, poured into Piraat tulip.
Dark amber body, minimal (1/4") white head, quick dissipation, but some decent lacing (?). Wondering if I got an oxidized bottle. Fruity hops in the nose, sweet malts, toffee. Spicy Hops up front on the tastebuds, nice malt backbone, sweet over bready, sticky brown sugar sweetness, with a decent bitter finish. Hops become more present as brew warms up. Good carbonated mouthfeel which surprised me after the minimal head. Significant alcohol heat in the finish inhibits drinkability. This is certainly a very tasty brew, but not one I'd drink more than one or two of.
