Taste at Holiday Ale Fest. Dark, deep, and deceptively smooth. Tastes like vanilla and sweet fruit. Hardly any indication of high alcohol.

Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured deep, brownish with amber highlights and a thin head. This one will sneak up on ya. Not as sweet as I would of imagined. Clean, dark fruits, loads of malt flavor. A hint f dark cherries and vanilla too.

5 oz. pour at Belmont Station Bier Cafe, pours a hazy bright golden orange with minimal head. Aroma of dark fruits, sweet candied sugar and lager yeast. Flavour of dark fruits, lager yeast, toasted bread, toffee and some chocolate. No trace of alcohol somehow, for a 14% brew. Medium complexity with a finish of toasted bread and some overripe fruits. Nice.
