Pour is a very dark brown hue with a hint of red held in the light. Off white colored head that fades to a ring. Moderate lacing. Aroma is more cinnamon foward to me, hints of watered down poblano pepper with a little vanilla. Taste follows the nose, with a little more nutmeg present. Still getting cinnamon, but the pepper heat disappears. Was hoping it would come as it warms, but none is detected in the taste. A somewhat sweet creamy malt backbone with a littl vanilla. Mouthfeel is quite thin, nothing too palate coating or complex. Still a good beer, but wish I tasted more apple brandy barrel.

Look : On point with a head with a harsh pour. Stays around longer than you'd think.

Smell: My favorite part, amazing smell. Really get all the flavors in the nose.

Taste likes its smells. Lots of flavors that seem to really meld well together

Feel- one knock is the mouthfeel, just super thin.

Overall - Great beer, really glad i traded for this. worth the wait.
