Notes/Commercial Description:
Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored "alt" style beer notably well balanced.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The body has a very beautiful deep amber color with good clarity and lively carbonation flowing up the center of the glass. The quick pour made only a modest one finger tall head. This head was light tan in color and quick fading. This made for no lacing at all.

Smell: The aroma is very inviting surprisingly fruity. It brings notes of dark bready maltiness with dark fruit, dark cherries, plums and apple peels.

Taste / Palate: First up is a medium body mix of bready sweet maltiness blending with the same dark fruit notes from the the aroma. The finish adds notes of roasted almond and a mild balance of earthy dryness from hops. The palate feels smooth and somewhat slick.
