Review of Batch #9. 22 ounce bottle poured into a goblet

A: Pours a dark amber/mahogany color with a vanilla colored head, good amount of carbonation streaming up the glass, some head retention, head was creamy, frothy, full with lots of tiny bubbles in it, good amount of lacing.

A: Spice, clove, bananas, toffee, Belgian yeast, picking up a hint of roasted toffee/caramel, alcohol is well hidden, smells pretty good.

T: Like the nose, spice, clove, bananas, subtle roasted toffee, aftertaste is of spice and cloves, semi-dry finish, mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.

O: Not sure about other batches, but Batch #9 is very tasty, very smooth, mouthfeel is amazingly creamy and balanced, several layers of flavors, the alcohol is well hidden for 8.9%, this is a very good beer.

Deep copper to light brown in color. There is some cloudiness within the body. There's a fingernail of tan head covering the majority of the top. Moderate lacing. Aroma is of fruity yeasty esters. The flavor is an abundance of sweet malt and light Belgian Candy sugar. The body is heavily carbonated, syrupy and chewy with a warming presence from the alcohol.
