Cavie (4013) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Bottle courtesy of AmEricanbrew. Clear light rusted orange pour. Sweet perfumy aroma. Powdery and spicy with ginger prevailing. Large spiced taste, like licking the underside of the lid of a jack-o-lanturn after burned for a week. Hints of cinnamon but not overbearing. Well done.
