Beautiful maghogany red color, creamy foam with a very tiny bit of lace. The taste starts off with a bang of earth, spice, rasins, and very nice bitter. The taste fades to a lovely bitter ending.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2 oz bottle at Bonaventure Lounge, LA. Dark brown/amber cloudy body with a very nice inch+ white head. Slightly sweet caramel aroma. Flavors of yeast, caramel and a very nice spiciness. Finish seemed a bit weak. I know I missed something because it was served way too cold (typical) and I didn’t have enough time to let it warm. A very nice beer.
