Tap @ CCB. Poured a deep hazy brown with a thin beige head. The nose is malty with strong notes of apple and brandy and lesser notes of brown sugar, caramel, and spice. Medium to full body with a smooth mouth feel. The flavor is apples, brown sugar, vanilla and some spice. Finishes with a good amount of warming alcohol. Good.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Tap at Rattle n Hum: Amber headless pour. Huge burning aroma- stings the nostrils with thick sugary brandy and ethanol. Slick hot body with flavors of thick caramel, candied malts and those hard Christmas candies that old women keep around the house. Way to much residual maltose and ethanol.

Sample from the growler I brought to Woodshop via "askdrtodd", thanks again for this one Todd. Pours a mostly clear amber with a small soapy off white head. Big nose of caramel apples, brown sugar and a hint of booze. Flavor was sweet caramel and some heat, finished quite smooth.
