Cloudy amber with a soft, white head. Floaties! The aroma has strong fruit, reminds me of an apple fig newton. Also has some sweet alcohol, toasted sugar, and pear esters. The flavor is intense. Sweet toasted biscuit, bread crust, light carameln toffee, apple, alcohol, and spices. Finishes a touch tart, on the sweeter side of balanced. Pretty good but different.
