Poured from a bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Deep amber, with nice thick and tan colored head. The head lasted a very long time, and left a nice coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: Pleasant, with a strong aroma of hops bitterness. There is some citrus and herb aromas as well that make for an interesting aroma.

Taste: A nice mix of citrus, hops, and herbs in the flavor, that make for an interesting and complex ale, but it is dominate with the hops. There is a nice after-taste, that lasts for a while but not too long.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and crisp, with a medium body.

Overall: This is an interesting and complex ale. I prefer the brewery's Eliot Ness over this ale though.

A little fruit cake on the nose joined by minty hops, spicy malt, fresh grain. Pours brilliant garnet tinted amber under a 2” very light tan tinted finely bubbled off-white persistent foam cap that marks each drink with a fine line. Provides a rich spicy malt palate with a hint of anise, a does of bread crust and a well rounded, drying bitter finish. Creamy with a medium body and medium carbonation.
