Poured from growler to nonic pint. Color is a golden amber with a nice, fluffy head. Aroma is a nice combination of spice, bubblegum,and fruit, with some booze as it warms. Definite warmth going down to warn this one carries a 9% ABV. Fruity, earthy, spicy, and full of banana and bubblegum notes with a warm clove finish.

On tap, poured into a balloon snifter. The aroma has some toffee / caramel notes and a light alcohol touch initially. The alcohol fades, and is replaced by a hop spiciness with bread and bubblegum. After awhile, the aroma settles into clove and tropical notes with a light toffee. The beer has a light haze to the orange-bronze hue, and is topped by a white, big, bubbly, soap head that has moderate retention and lace. The taste is a balanced medium high bittersweet. The beer is oily, a bit on the heavy side, with a big foamy carbonation and a medium full body. The flavor is spicy with a warm alcohol and notes of toast and tropical fruits. It finishes zingy with a spice kick and a light alcohol heat that turns to marmalade and burnt bread which has a moderate length and an aftertaste that's light with notes of dry, crusty bread and resin, and a light bubblegum hint.
