I had the prvilidge of tasting this one a beer tasting event out in Long Beach with several other B.A.'s.Just by looking at the bottle and the logo of Pink Elephants is rather intersting to note what can be the outcome to this.The appearance of this has a nice somewhat cloudy amber color with a medium head. The first sip was a quick hint of either milds pears and spice with a good bitter taste. I've heard its a season brew, but I have been getting some recent info on it being served on tap in some locations, if its spotted get a pint.

Pours light brown with voluminous creamy head. Lighter than I expected.

Caramel, apple, bread, cinnamon, maybe some gingerbread?, and plenty of phenolics in the nose.

Taste is very similar to the aromas. Bready, caramel and apple flavors are prevalent. Raisins and some chocolate powder in the middle. Finish is spicy with ginger, cinnamon, and hazelnut flavors that leave the sides of the tongue tingly. Bitterness is moderate.

I am not sure if I would consider this very seasonal. There is plenty of spice, but they do not strike me as being particularly holiday themed. Maybe the color threw me. I was expecting something something more brooding. In any case the beer is very flavorful and quite digestable. Recommended.
