Poured a dark copper with a small tan head. Aroma of spices, raisin bread, and alcohol. Very sweet and goes down with a slight burn. Would be tough to take an entire bottle by myself - oh who am I kidding. Truly, candy in bottled form.

Bottle. Aroma of yeast, citrus, spice with some muskiness. Clear copper color with amazing carbonation feeding a thick tan head. Fruity, candy like flavor that quickly gives way to somewhat muddy finish. Good body. NIce, but maybe a bit simple.

Judging from the appearance and aroma, I expected to thoroughly enjoy this one...then comes the taste. I know the sugar has to be up there to attain the high alcohol content, but this is OVERLY SWEET. Had trouble getting this one finished.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep, hazy orange color with a small off-white head. The aroma was very yeasty...caramel, plum, other dark fruits, and a slightly sour character. The flavor was very similar to the aroma, but with a slightly sweet tone. The feel was crisp... a little too crisp for this style...slightly thick...dry finish.
