3.5/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle in to pint glass
Appearance – Pours a darker amber brown color with a one finger off white head. The head has decent retention fading to give a lighter level of lacing
Smell – The aroma is biggest of some caramel and bready malt with notes of some spices mostly of a cinnamon and ginger nature .
Taste – The taste starts out of sweet caramel and a nice toasted malt and bready taste. There are notes of cinnamon and ginger that quickly come to the taste. These flavors last throughout with some more bitter citrus flavors coming and going as the taste moves on. In the end a lightly roasted malty flavor with a very light herbal hop are left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side with a carbonation level that is average to below average. Both good for the bock nature of the brew.
Overall – It is heavy and warming enough to make for a decent winter beer, but yet not too heavy to take away its more sessionalbe style.
