Pours a dark orange beer with a good white head. Smells caramel, malts and honey. Tastes chocolate, caramel, raisins and creme brulee. Nice! Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture.

12oz into a pint can glass, pours a murky gross looking brown with a thin small white head the rims the glass. Aroma is roasty orange spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, and dried plum. Taste is rich amber waves coupled with the orange spice and nutmeg sensations, followed by rich and bready malt blast which covers ground in the overall stance of this brew. Dry aftertaste with orange apricot. A full bodied witer brew with lots of seasonal spice to it. Not bad

Bought this on sale. Very tasty, a slight hint of orange and chocolate. Spice is present. For a 6.9% beer it is great!

Surprisingly pleasant with a nice vanilla note balanced in a malty amber ale. Rich but was not cloying sweet or thick.

Surprisingly well balanced. It has some sweet fruits, nicely spiced, searching for flavours, gulps down amazingly easily. Recommended!

12 oz. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra, Tiel. Clear copper with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with some cinnamon. Mapple syrup taste with some malts. Low in carbonation, which adds to the sweetness which is too great in my opinion. Not bad but not my type of beer.

Draft. Good beer that’s solid, layered, and I enjoy a pint of (or few) every year. A little sweet, some hops, and some banana bread or some kind of sweet bread like that. Nice amber color, long finish, medium bodied, oh, and delicious.
