Thanks to dschuster03 for sharing this growler.

A - Golden colored beer with a bit of a white head that didn't stay for long and left nothing on the glass.

S - Smells of honey, with some spices. I was hoping for a more authentic baklava experience with some flakey pastry in there, but alas, no go.

T - Honey, spices, some nuttiness that maybe is representative of pastry some how. If nothing else, it gives it some more depth.

M - Medium bodied, lower carbonation.

O - Fine for what it is. Think this could potentially be fine-tuned to be more representative of actual baklava. Not bad.

I had this on-tap at Jackie O's during the release this week. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy reddish amber with hardly any head at all.

Smell: Lots of cinnamon with some sweet, bready malt. There are some fruity notes in there as well.

Taste: Very sweet but not in a cloying way. Spiced very well, picking up some cinnamon. There is a mild alcohol note and a bittersweet finish. The nutty cinnamon flavor that lingers is amazing and really reminds me of baklava.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: I was really excited when I heard that this beer would be at the release. The aftertaste is just wonderful. The spices and sweetness mix very well.

12oz growler into tulip glass. Thanks to seeswo for sending this one.

A: Pours light amber, some off white bubbles which recedes to a ring and lasts for the duration.

S: Bready, sugar, dry cinnamon and spice (like cardamom), and a little toffee-ish malt. Quite fragrant.

T: Graham cracker, nuttiness, spices (cinnamon, clove). Surprisingly dry.

M: Medium body and medium-light carbonation, with crispness. No alcohol present.

O: Captures the namesake very well. I was expecting something completely different based on the name (heavy and sweet), but it turned out to be a tasty, dry, spice-forward beer. This is a good cold weather beer that manages to be light and not sugary.

Poured from growler into tulip -

A: Poured a deep burnt honey hue with one finger head that dissipated into a thin off white lacing , good carbonation.

S: Honey , cinnamon , slight malt

T: Honey , sweet malts , slight cinnamon , walnut

O: Overall this was a treat to drink , It reminds me of a nice winter warmer with mild sweetness and light spice - The slight cinnamon in the finish is very good and it gives off a nice warmth.

Careful this one will sneak up on you .

Well done Brad, can't wait to see how you tweak this one and hopefully it becomes a regular @ Jackie O's.

Pours a dark orange color, with a thin head.

It smells slightly of honey and maybe a little grapefruit, which is ok. It has some nice body and a soft feel in your mouth, followed by some alcohol warmness at the end. Taste-wise, it has some nice caramel sweetness and the honey is obviously contributing a lot of flavor as well. Maybe some faint nuts too? The more I drank, however, the more the sweetness became overpowering.

I'm not exactly a braggot expert though so what the hell do I know... It's definitely drinkable, and I like baklava, but I probably wouldn't order it again. There's just some quality to it that's off-putting to me. I can appreciate the brewer for trying something new, though.
