Pours a true amber with a short off-white head that quickly recedes. Little to no lacing.
Nice slightly sweet, slightly spicy smell. Taste follows the nose, with malts and vanilla up front, not-too-sweet brown sugar and caramel notes towards the middle, and biscuity flavors at the end. There's also a little hop coolness that helps to balance things out. Also a hint of clove and sometimes a slightly metallic twang.
The most impressive thing about this beer is the rich, creamy mouthfeel. There's not a ton of depth though, and it doesn't last very long on the palate. A solid brew overall.
