2013 Commemorative Ale.

Pours out a copper orang with a thin, frothy, off-white head. Spicing is subtle in the nose. I get mostly citrus-related notes: the coriander and orange peel. I also pick up a lot of caramel. Reminds me of a winter release of a typical biere de garde. Flavor is loads of caramel, orange, bread, honey, lightly toasted grains, with a fairly mild yeast character. Cocoa in the finish. Mouthfeel is silky and a bit sticky. I really enjoyed this, and it reminds me of some French bieres de garde that are released around the holidays. I should have saved this for Thanksgiving dinner; it would have gone perfectly with it.

A: Pours a hazy copper color with a 1 finger white head that dissipates quickly.

S: Smell is very nice, caramel, orange, grassy hops, and spice.

T: Up front is huge nutmeg and caramel, light citrus and bready yeast, a fairly strong hop presence.

M: Mouth feel is a bit strange the beer pours fairly thick but it feels very light, light carbonation and a slightly dry finish.

O: Definitely different, this was my first beer from this brewery and it has me wanting to try more.
