Served from a 750ml bottle, caged and corked, and painted white, with that really cool golden dragon label. The color is a nearly opaque deep brown with an amber tint around the edges. The tan, 2-finger head is thick and creamy, showing decent retention, with considerable lacing, clinging in fluffy tufts all around the circumference of the tulip.
The aroma consists of rich caramel malts, citrus, a little clove and corriander, and a subtle floral characteristic. The well-balanced flavor profile features light citrus, subtle clove, a touch of hoppy bitterness, berries, rasins, caramel, and some chocolate--and ample, warm alcohol.
The mouth is well-rounded, not overly complex, and smooth. The sweetness nor the alcohol overwhelms the palate--thus resulting in a very drinkable brew, for those who enjoy the style. Very solid overall. And again, the golden dragon on the label is very cool.
