Brown to red body, off white head. Aroma has spices, burned candy, alcohol, almonds and sugars. Nice oily and fulfilling mouthfeel, but there is some metally notes. Too much alcohol and spices for my taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy light reddish amber. Small fizzy, wispy white head. Nice malty aroma, sweet, caramel, dark fruit, spices, sugar. Medium body. Flavor is like the aroma but a little less pronounced plus a good deal of woodiness. Lightly syrupy, soft, alcohol shows up in the finish in particular. This was ok.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Served at a good temperature with a large, foamy, frothy, cream-colored head that settles slowly, and good lacing. Color is a clear medium honey amber. Aroma is malt, candy sugar, caramel, spice, yeast. Flavorís like nose, sweet, then bitter, followed distantly by tang mixed with the candy sugar, yeast, and suggestion of hop. Body is good but carbonation a little weak. Finish is like flavor, strength is there,
