Smooth and crisp malt with a slight hops snap. Clear amber with a small, but lasting foamy head. Hops linger on the palate. Some elements of caramel and gingerbread, although body is not heavy. A bit richer, but not a winter warmer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Super hazy golden-orange with some yellow trim; packed with tons of sediment that float all around. Creamy, beige head settles fast without leaving any lacing behind. Aroma is super malty; toasted caramels, mild spices, and a deep seeded, musty & earthy aroma. Some sweet fruits in the background, dates & prunes. Taste is amplified with plenty of caramel malts, spices, esters, sharp prune & grape fruitiness, almost wine-like. Phenol alcohol noticeable. Deep earthy tones, almost a dirt flavor. Okay, but a little too malty and sweet for my liking.
