on tap at the brewery - served in taster

Pours an opaque darkness with a thinner layer of beige head. Coating of film rests on top, leaving a few spots of lacing.

Spices and apples in the nose with pears and dark fruit. Burnt sugar, bread crust, Belgian yeast, alcohol warmth.

Sweet and spicy up front with cinnamon, coriander and apples. Pears, raisins and dates with some burnt sugar sweetness. Full malty backbone with dark fruits and boozy warmth.

Fuller medium body, well carbonated, sticky and full on the tongue. This is decent, but the apples seem to overpower some of the more delicate flavors.

A: The beer is hazy dark brown in color. It poured with a finger and a half high dark beige head with some darker yeast particles on the bubbles. This quickly died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of dark fruits and apples in the nose along with some hints of cinnamon.
T: Similar to the taste, the smell has flavors of dark fruits and apples along with some notes of Belgian yeast. There are also lingering hints of spices in the finish.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: It seems that this beer could use a heavier body to accentuate the interesting mix of flavors in the taste.
