Pours a translucent copper-brown with a finger of khaki head. Head retention is okay. Aroma is spices, yeast, clove, and toasty, earthy, caramel malts with - again - a heavy apple cider note, that is to say, heavy spices, apples, and sweetness. It has a nice, round sweetness. It's flavor profile is lively, lovely yeast with spices, clove, nutmeg, and toasty, earthy, nutty, pale malts giving it life. Sweetness comes a strong factor in the later half of the glass, as it warms. It tastes big, although the heat just seeps through the edges. Mouth feel is effervescent which breaks up the velvety texture. It has a medium middle of the road consistency. Overall, a pretty good high octane beer, and while sweetness is high, it's no pastry stout.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.
