Just a big ol' fruitcake, rich with big notes of ripe figs, burned banana peels and malts. Beautiful ruby colored with a not big but thick and creamy head.

A: crystal clear; amber with a reddish tinge; 1 finger khaki head that receded slowly to a thin cap; light lacing that didn't last;

S: a little restrained; caramel, brown sugar, earthy hops, a little alcohol;

T: overwhelmingly malty; sweet, caramel; no roasted flavor; a little boozy; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: medium bodied - a little syrupy; moderate carbonation;

O: I'm so used to drinking Lagunitas's hop forward beers that something like this catches me by surprise; nice complex flavors and aromas;

Beautiful Amber/red color. Fruity nose. Hoppy and sweet. A cross between an IPA and a stout. Quite an experience. Try it.
