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.
