4.5/5  rDev +15.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Appearance: This beer pours a reddish brown hue with a slightly off-white head that only rose up half an inch tall. Minimal amount of laceing and has a hint of cloudiness.

Smell: This has nice raisin and figgy aromas, toasted bread, smells like a little brett. This also has really nice fruit cake aromas and perhaps roasted apple skins. Very pleasant.

Taste: The flavors consist of lots of toasted breads, fruitiness remains here as well. Sweet red apples. Im also getting some Christmasy spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and some all spice. There is a slight alcohol bite throughout the palate but nothing to harsh.

Mouthfeel: Easy to drink. With its spritzy mouthfeel I am left to believe that this is high in carbonation . Medium bodied. Smooth and creamy. Finishes with a slight bubblely finish.

Drinkability: This was a delightful drink indeed. I wish I could get ahold of a few bottles for myself to enjoy over and over, but being the limited release Its just not that easy. So if you can get some of this at your location I would suggest you try this before its no more.

Collaboration not litigation batch #7

Enjoyed this in a delirium tulip glass

Poured a soft off white 1 finger head which quickly dissipates and is deep mahogany in color

Upfront this beer has a sweet toffee/caramel malt flavor with some dark fruit and little hop presence. Finishes strong with med-high carbonation and extremely pleasant alcohol warmth.

Closest thing we can get to russian river on the east coast and it doesn't disappoint!
