A- Pours out orange-brown and cloudy. My aggressive pour leaves two full fingers of head. Some lacing.
S- A good full smell of caramel, pineapple and tropical fruit, sweet orange, malt syrup, maple syrup, tea.
T- As with the taste, a lot of caramel with tropical fruit sweetness. There's a bit of a break in the middle of my mouth where the beer suddenly goes to bitterness, with a black tea and bitter greens type of taste.
M- Good, sweet and a bit syrupy but the bitterness counteracts that nicely.
O- A more complex beer than I expected. Some nice flavors of caramel. Maybe a bit sweet, but not bad at all.
