Poured on-tap in their beer hall into chalice.
A: Pours a dark caramel brown with 1/4 inch off white head that quickly dissipates.
S: Sweet caramel malt with hints of clove and banana.
T: Sweet caramel malt, clove, banana, and a note of bubble gum.
M: Light-medium body. Bready sweet. Lightly dry.
D: Decent for style, but lacking some body and would be nice to have more clove/banana.

Tastes of caramel apple and oak. Great toffee aroma. Don't know how it compares to others of this style, but it is a great beer.

4.15/5  rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: dark amber brown with lingering head

Smell: Light apple

Taste: Light dry caramel toffee with an apple cider note and some oak

Feel: Light, Effervescent

Overall: I don't know the style well enough to comment much on fidelity, but I suspect it is outside of the norm. Light and subtle flavors despite the dark color. Complex yet refreshing.
