Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruits, and a slight brandy aroma. Taste is much the same with a slight tartness. There is a mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average better with a better smell than taste in my opinion.

Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

The Spelunky drinking game can easily get out of hand... Anyway, this stuff pours a lightly-brackish sienna topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises toasted caramel, toasted coconut, buttery biscuit, and light wood. The taste holds notes of toasted oak, toffee, bad brandy, and light grass. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, an okay beer, but one that just doesn't utilize the brandy spirals very well, and one that seems to ignore the possibilities of the style blending (what was the point of that, anyway?).

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

a: This was a murky brown; served to me with a thin, short lived head.

s: Vanilla, sugary booze, sweet bread, and some woody astringency.

t: Sweet and boozy overall. Some earthy/peaty malts and a little caramel take a back seat to sugary liquor, sharp vanilla, and plenty of lingering woodiness.

m: Gently carbonated and medium to light body.

o: Not sure about this one. Apparently a cream/brown ale hybrid? Okay but I won't revisit.

Serving type: on-tap
