Its getting to be that time. You know when you have to start cleaning out your beer closet. So I have been interested to try this but never had. The pour is a murky light brown with stronger red tints especially when held to the light. A remnant head and limited lacing. The smell is pronounced malt. Extra aromas include banana and definite cloves. A rich deep malt also has promise of caramel apples and a bit of brown sugar to boot.
The taste is rich and bready. The malt is the first thing noticed but is quickly swept away by the intense banana and cloves mix. Very strong the flavor overwhelms and reflects long after the taste. More subtle flavors emerge though. A sweet candi or brown sugar taste is noticeable. As the beer warms, the flavors become more intense. The malt is light and limited in wheat flavor. Really the spiciness and sweeter flavors just mask any backing the beer has.
The body is light to medium. I think if more of a malt presence it would balance the beer out. No real strong phenol taste for a such a higher ABV, which is good. Overall is was worth the wait. I definite recommend.
