Served ice-cold in a bottle at San Sei Restaurant, Kihei, Maui, Hawaii. Poured into a 12 oz pint glass and I had to let it warm for quite awhile to enjoy. 5/28/14

A - Dark brown, three finger tan, off-white head with nice lacing

S - Spicy, yeasty and subtle sweet aroma.

T - Brown sugar, prune, raisin and licorice dominates early. As it warms the spice and yeasty, warming alcohol character comes out. Adequate carbonation. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel.

O - Excellent brew. Wish a snifter was available at the restaurant.

Serving type: bottle
