Taken from my beer journal dated 6/13/12

Appearance: 750mL bottle poured into standard pint. Colour is a nice walnut-brown with a large two-finger head that fades to a puffy layer on top with minimal lacing. No visible carbonation but it certainly is audible!

Smell: Faint aromas of sweet malts, bready yeast, and walnuts.

Taste: Well-balanced flavours of sweet, nutty malts, spicy yeast, and a warming boozy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body is thick, silky, and alive with plenty of carbonation. Finishes with a lingering stickiness.

Overall: A solid brew. In general, it is a pretty sweet beer but not in a cloying way. It is nicely balanced and interesting enough for me to want to finish the bottle.

A - Deep brown with ruby highlights, khaki head and plenty of foam on the sides of the glass.

S - Nutty (not sure I would have picked out walnut), sweet malts, light banana, fruity as it warms, light cocoa.

T - More dark fruits in flavor, sweet fruity bubblegum, banana, nutty, toasted bread with light cocoa.

M - Very smooth and creamy. Maybe a little thin and watery but it works really well.

D - Enjoyed all the Perennial beers i have tried so far. Interesting twist on the style.
