3.83/5 rDev -5.7%
A deep orange with brownish hues; nice lacing and a rocky head. A nice swirl in my goblet releases an aroma of cinnamon roll and bread yeast. Hops play a part up front, too, making the smell interesting. Very warm and inviting smell.
Bread and spice. Rich notes of butterscotch, caramel, and brown sugar. Balanced out by a spicy and citrusy hop bite. Carbonation keeps the mouthfeel from cloying and finish is dry. Drinks nice. Well-balanced and does not quite drink like it is pushing 10%.
A solid ale. A real steal for under $3 a bottle -- great late autumn evening sipper. Might be interesting to replace cognac with this for a sauce for steak.
