16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a relatively clear, dark amber-hued body with a slim, light beige head.
Smell: Moderately spicy with a growing pine resin presence. Toasty, crystal malts. Thin hint of fruit. A bit of alcohol.
Taste: Toasted bread, crystal maltiness with an extra sip of thinned treacle. Scantly nutty. Lightly estery. Woodsy, lightly resiny hops with very light citrus slipping in the taste. Medium bitterness, yet it still finishes a bit sweetish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It's fine, but, I'd politely pass it up on a second occasion.
Serving type: on-tap

Also sampled tonight on 3/1/14 but had this one back in 2012. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute glass.
Pours a hazy amber bronze in color with a good 1-finger light beige foamy head that settles down to a thin layering. Lacing was seen with each sip but wasn't heavy. The aroma is of caramel malts with a touch of honey and spices. The taste is about the same with some citrus over tones and a strong pepper spice finish. Slightly bitter finish as well.

A: Hazy red-orange, with a tan head.
S: Pineapple, mango, orange hop character blended perfectly with cinnamon and clove spiciness in the nose.
T: Orange, mango, lemon, grapefruit and pine. Cinnamon and nutmeg show up in the finish and aftertaste.
M: Medium bodied and smooth, but also a bit foamy.
O: Taste is not quite what I had hope for after the nose, but it smells really good.
