Jet black body with a thin dark tan head which doesn't last long. Mild lacing. Aroma is overwhelming with raisins with notes or caramel and apple. The flavor is rich with the Apple brandy barrel well represented. It's a touch on the sweet side but the spice and peppers are well represented; better than expected for a 2013 beer. Body is smooth and full. Enjoyed at westbrook's awesome tap room. One of the best beers I have ever had. It just takes a hit for the unidimensional aroma and sweetness.
