Poured on-tap at Old Corner Cafe, Naugatuck, Conn.
A: Poured a cinnamon amber orange with a thin covered of carbonation that vanished before I sat down, leaving nothing between me and the beer.
S: Smells chemically spiced, faintly of vanilla, oak wood and malts.
T: The only thing I can equate it to is a liquid Milky Way bar. It's very sweet; lots of vanilla, caramel malt, spices and some liquid smoke, or something. Tastes like it had Hot Damn poured in it.
M: Mouthfeel is thin, but a little chemically astringent in the finish.
D: I put this one down, because it's sweet and enjoyable as a sipper, but I wouldn't get two in a row. The ABV is manageable for a warmer, and this one screams "cup of cocoa, or this spicy sweet beer?"
Artificially spiced like AB's Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale, which is light a light lager with some artificial flavoring. This one is interesting, but beware, the sickening sweetness might turn you off pretty quickly.
Serving type: on-tap
