Had on draft at the Great Lost Bear in Portland, Maine on May 2, 2010.

Dark brown color, not much head.

Smells super sweet (almost candy sweet) and malty. Taste the same. The heat of the alcohol is clearly there.

Full bodied, highly drinkable. A solid brew.

Pours a cloudy dark amber color, not unlike a good cider. No head or lacing. The smell is all about the alcohol. Past that primarily a yeasty dark fruity aroma. Full bodied, the mouth feel is immediately conditioned by the alcohol. Slightly under-carbonated, flavor is sweet with brown sugar apples and pears. The 10% ABV is fully showcased in the smell, mouth feel and can be felt every inch of the way down.
