4/5  rDev n/a
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a deep mahogany red with a nice thumb of head that sticks around the whole drink.

S: Sweet toasted malts up front with that caramel and toffee aroma. There is a nice spicy floral hop back note, and a bready yeastiness.

T: The malt and hops are perfectly balanced with a nice sweet spiced caramel flavor. It is amazing that they can get so much spiciness from just hops and malt, you'd almost think it was lightly spiced with clove and nutmeg.


M: Medium body, decent carbonation and a nice smooth round warm mouth feel.

D: Excellent brew, very clean and crisp.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a dirty orange-brown color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and bread, with not too much else going on. The flavor is a little bit more complex, with some grains of paradise mixed in with the toffee and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
