It pours a dark chestnut brown. It's very opaque with an inviting, rich look. The head is initially a finger thick and look nice on top of the much darker beer, but there's little retention and before long it's gone. After a quick swirl, slight lacing presents.
The smell is very welcoming. Very malty, caramelly, with some spices and a hint of smoke.
For the style, the taste is right up there. The caramel malts take top billing, but the spice, smoke and high alcohol are very worthy supporting members and make for a nice flavor profile.
A full-bodied beer with burst of sweet and complimentary hits of various spices and some char from the cedar. No real hop presence and little to no bitterness. The spice and smokey feel balance the malty sweetness and everything is cleaned up at the end with the heat from the alcohol.
I don't care much for lagers or German malt bombs, but this was a damned good beer. It's got a lagery taste and feel but everything is spot on with sharp edges like an ale. Good stuff, great flavor and the perfect amount of alcohol. Makes for a good night sipper.
