Ap: Deep dark copper color which is practically opaque, faint ruddy edges. Huge head, very good retention and lace.
Sm: Gorgeous nose, an outstanding aroma! The freshest orangey hops aroma, wonderfully addictive.
Ta/Mf: Big malt, smooth and complex. The flavor profile evolves from sweetish malt into bitter hops in a transition that is near magic. I expected an ale that would be heavy and hard to drink, but this one is medium bodied, very smooth, and an absolute pleasure to imbibe. Finishes with a slight spicey-cinnamon edge, again pleasant.
Da: High. Hey, I couldn't drink this stuff like water, but it is a fine ale to keep on the shelf for worthy occasions.
Serving type: bottle
