Bottle in tumbler, pours a clear dark red-brown color with a huge beige head that slowly dissipates. Lots of brown sugar on the nose, maybe some orange peel as it warms there is nice spicy nose, candy like. Flavor is unique with subtle fruity almost belgian like sweetness, banana, software citrus hops. Unique brown ale with great complexity.
