Pours a cloudy, amber brown. Big fluffy off-white head forms, and stays.
Very little, to no lacing.

Smells of sweet malts, licorice, some hints of clove, and hints of cola and maybe just a subtle hint of coffee. Not overpowering at all.

Sweet malt taste, some spice hints, alcohol, perhaps some hints of cola in the aftertaste. . There is some caramel sweetness upfront.

Mouthfeel is a little creamy, but not mush. Medium bodied, with a warm alcohol finish. Not much carbonation.

A good example of this style, but there are better.

On tap at The Alibi Room in Vancouver.

A: 1/4" off white head over orangey amber liquid with excellent clarity.

S: Yeasty and sweet malt.

T: Sweet malt with some citrus taste. Not as rich as expected.

M: Medium viscosity and carbonation.

O: Decent, but not nearly as good as Celebrator. But then again, not many are.

Thanks to Kate for bringing me this one!

A: Deep caramel color. There is a little bit of a haziness to it. The head is a little thin, but what is there is light tan in color.

S: There is a big malt flavor, it smells thick and syrupy. Caramel with light vanilla and possibly a hint of oak. The finish has a nice bready aroma.

T: Big malty flavor, there is a caramel sweetness that I like a lot. Bready flavors, and a slight hit from some earthy hops finishes it out. A touch of alcohol, and perhaps a woody flavor in the finish.

M: Medium in body, slightly syrupy feeling, with fine carbonation.

O: Overall I really like this beer. It's got the sweet malt flavor I expect from the style, and is packed full of flavor. Meal in a glass indeed.
