On tap at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, brown sugar, fruits, spices, and a slightly tart aroma. Taste is much the same with a mild spice bitterness with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but the tartness is unexpected even though it works out with the aromas and flavors.

Poured a 330 into a snifter.

A - A deep brown with an ivory head , recedes rather quickly.

S - Caramel, cherries and bubblegum. Some alcohol that is harsh on the nose. Candy notes could be more intense.

T - Starts with some deep nutty and caramel malts, perhaps some butterscotch. Taste is followed by a warming period accented with pepper and brandy. Finishes with some spice.

M - Medium body with some lively carbonation going on.

O - Not a bad beer, but I can think of a handful of better BSDA's.
