Aroma: slight fruit, bread, sweet malt, strong malt aromas, slight toast, light caramel, no hops, fruit is grape, no roast or burnt malt. Appearance: Brilliant deep copper, off white fluffy head but low retention, ruby highlights, not a lot of lace but some legs. Flavor: rich malt sweetness, a little alcohol that shows up especially in the aftertaste, some hop bitterness in the background for balance but overall leans to the malt. Pleasant mix of alcohol, and malt, long malt after taste. Mouthfeel: Medium full body, medium low carbonation, slight warming, creamy, smooth. Overall Impression: very drinkable, not cloying, smooth, strong and rich.

A - Copper, mostly hazy but translucent. Very little head, but a touch persists. A bit of lacing, but not much.

S - Very subtle sour note, with a bigger toffee hit.

T - Follows through with the toffee nose, sweet and delicious. Close brings that light sourness, along with a bit of bitterness.

M - Mild carbonation, but brisk and easy to drink, with no sign of the solid ABV.

O - A delicious malt-forward flavor. Sweet, with the ABV well hidden, but definitely there. Solid.

Crisp, strong aroma has a malty core with an underpinning of honey, cinnamon and cloves. Pours a clear, dark copper, almost mahogany, with a fairly thick light wheat head. Malty flavor has firm earthy, caramel, and honey tones with just hints of spice and wood. Texture has decent body and fizz, leaving an earthy, slightly woody finish and a persistent tingle. Happy Autumn!
