This beer and vanilla ice cream would be the perfect dessert. The beer is murky brown in color. This beer smells awesome with apples, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Its taste about the same as it smells with some added caramel. Its smells like a super sweet beer, but its really very drinkable. Now where is my ice cream!!!

Serving type: on-tap

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.
