3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Saarlander for this one via Mystery Swap 2.0. Turbid deep copper pour with 2-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, fruit, toffee, apple, nutmeg, hops. The palate is complex and rather hefty, with flavors of caramel malt, hops, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon), and fruit flavors, including pear, apple, and berry notes. This one was very enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 A nice amber pour, long lasting head, lacing throughout the drink. some nice maltiness, but plenty of hops as well, very clean aftertaste, alcohol is very well hidden, very nice brew.
