Beautiful dark amber color, with a decent head that kept pace with the beer as I drank it. Sweeter taste than I had expected, with a definite almond flavor. Could taste the alcohol as well, but it stood up to the comlexity of its flavors. Reminded me of an almond liquor, only with carbonation. Be carfeul to drink slowly, and try to pair it with a game bird or sharp cheese.

Reviewed from notes: Shared with my good friend Matt.

appearance: copper brown orange with 1 finger off white head

smell: dark fruits, malty, sweet, slight sourness

taste: dark fruits, grapes/raisons, malts, some oxidation,

mouthfeel: mild carbonation, medium body,

overall: not a bad beer just not really my style. glad I got to try it though.

cheers,l
