This one pours with the appears a vary cloudy and dark iced tea color that has an off white to tan head that rich and pillowy and settles very slow leaving a rich curtain like lacing down the glass.

The nose is delicious with a combination of citrus and bread dominating the floral and alcohol that floats on a subtle bed of coriander, cardamon, nutmeg, and pine.

The taste is spectacular and rich. While it has a very high alcohol content the taste is not dominated by it, it enhances it. The flavors are a well blended citrus, bread and floral explosion of complexity that coats the palate is beer-gasmic awesomeness. the tastiness and flavors of spice are just amazing and perfect.

The moutfeel is super rich and just right for the style.

Overall this is an exceptional beet and extremely enjoyable. I highly recommend it as it is a beer-gasm ina bottle.
