Poured into nonic pint. Sizzles, recded. Lace pattern like frosty mountains. Ruby-Amber color.

Sweet nose of caramel and bread

Taste is quite sweet, caramel, cola, a little dark fruit. Boozy at the end.

Nice mouth feel.

Imbalanced in its sweetness, but an engaging experience, somewhere between darker Oktoberfests and doppelbocks, which is a weird comparison, I know.

Pours a cola color with minimal head. Nice cherry/plum/raisin aroma. Taste closely follows aroma cherry malt with dark raisin, finishes with a touch of hops bittering , chocolate and alcohol heat. I classify this as a "winter warmer." Probably tastes better on the 50 to 55 degrees vs. standard ice cold beer.

A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of spices, dark fruits and breads. Taste is bready, a good bit of spices, sugar, alcohol is present throughout. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
