3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
nearly clear copper pour with a 1 finger, oily yellow cake head. Aroma is loaded with caramel and toffee, with some nice, pine, citrus and spicy hops and a little toast and biscuit. Flavor is again full of caramel and toffee, some nice toasty notes, light roast nuts, lots of sweet pine, some grapefruit and spicy hops coming in toward the finish along with some interesting berry- like fruity esters and a nice, lingering earthy, toasty grain note that really sells it as a proper autumn seasonal beer. Medium body, slightly syrupy entry, off dry finish, lingering dryness, medium, sharp and lively carbonation. Really pretty fantastic stuff very well put together, but maybe a bit too boozy and astringent.
