A - Served in a tulip, this beer is a hazy orange color. Very little head to speak of, save a few bubbles and specks of foam. Nothing great, but the big problem is that this beer was served entirely too cold. It took a good 15 minutes of cupping the glass in my hand to warm it up to a point where the flavors really started to come out. This is a disservice to all the effort that has apparently gone into this beer.

S - Lots of caramel notes, aromas of belgian yeasts. Very rich on the nose. There may be just a hint of apple hidden back there somewhere...

T - Rich and full, lots more caramel, and definitely some oak. The apple is there a bit more, very subtle, but gives an amazing sensation of eating a caramel apple. Very nice. No heat from the barrel, and no indication of the 9.5%.

M - Great body, coating and viscous without being overly thick. Carbonation is light, but just right. Both very appropriate for the style.

On-tap at Raleigh Times served in a tulip glass a murky brown with a thin khaki head that diminishes to a ring and leaves decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dried fruits, brown sugar and a hint of wood. The taste is a nice amount of sweet burnt caramel malts, dried fruit, and tart apples. The beer is medium bodied with smooth mild carbonation. This is an absolutely wonderful brew, cheers to Mother Earth, Carolina Distillery and Raleigh Times for collaborating on this one.
