I tried this fascinating ale hand-pulled into a large tulip glass at a Bronx pub.
Appearance was magnificent. Rich brown with a fine crown.
The aroma was also very much something to savor. Rich, nutty, and sweet, with subtle notes of Calvados.
Taste was very good, though maybe a letdown from the initial impression. It tasted quite a bit like a fine Doppelbock sweetened with, interestingly enough, brown sugar. A bit of a boozy finish.
This brew is quite complex, but I found a cloying sweetness and booziness sticking to the roof of my mouth.
As for drinkability -- while this ale is delicious, it left a very sweet and alcoholic taste in my mouth that left me clamoring for a glass of water.
Serving type: on-tap
