Aged 12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Slow but full pour left sediment on the side and bottom of the bottle, with a good bit of suspended sediment in the pour. The body was orange-brown, hazy with a modest and mostly short-lived, bone-colored head. Fruity aroma with a hint of biscuits.
Flavorful, with plenty of dark fruits and caramel plus hints of molasses, brown sugar, and spices.
Higher ABV evident, in a mostly attractive fashion, in both the aroma and the flavor.
Feel: smooth; warm; low carbonation; medium+ body.

Served on-tap at Texas Arizona in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a hazy to cloudy dark amber in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation and some reddish brown highlights. The beer has a finger thick creamy beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of sweet toffee malts with some lighter hints of banana and clove. There is also a light amount of yeast presence.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of malts with some toffee and dark fruit sweetness. This is over the top of some spiciness - clove and banana - as well as some yeastiness. Light amounts of lingering bitterness in the finish.

M: Medium to full bodied with light amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Fairly easy to drink considering the ABV - which is well hidden in this brew. There is a nice complexity and balance to the flavor making this one quite enjoyable.
