Growler provided by buddhabelly91.
Poured into HF stemmed glass. Served at ~ 55F.
A: Deep reddish-brown color with a thick blocky tan head that held on for a good 4-5 minutes before dissipating. Swirling the glass regenreates the head slightly, but it has lost it's blocky character . Held to the light, the beer shows ruby hues on the edges and is clear and free of any residual suspended material.
S: Notes of caramel, brown sugar and sweet malt with hints cinnamon and vanilla over a fresh apple base.
T: Apple cobbler in a glass. A rich, nutty flavor adds to the elements in the smell above. A touch of bread in the finish The richness separates this from apple pie (to me at least).
M: As noted above, there's a mild slickness/richness that coats the inside of my mouth. Carnonation is a bit light (could be growler related), but this doesn't detract from the overall experience.
O: A very nice variation on a brown ale. FB seems to be able to integrate fruit and spice in it's beers well and this is a nice example without goin over the top. Now if we bourbon barrel aged this and added a bit of body, it could be like likquid bread pudding.
Serving type: growler
