first aroma is a vanilla wavering toward bubblegum, sweet but a little sting on the side. Flavor is like the worldís best Hawaiian punch-- most fruity, cherry dominant. with alcohol and a resiny hop buzz I can usually tell a Belgian by aroma and taste but the sweetness hides these, so a little flat, not as dimensional as could be expected. sweet finish.

Draft. Dark ruby with a little off white head. Dark fruit, spices, yeast, nutty and roasty. Medium sticky body with little carb, gets a little watery as it warms. Not bad.

On tap @ Industry Public House. I had the barrel aged version of this beer. Pours a medium cocoa brown with a thin off white ring of foam. Slightly tart aroma with a woody, earthy scent. Fairly smooth with a good oaky flavor mixed with some winter spices. Flavors get better as it warms up a bit. Itís not as complex as I thought it might be but it was better than other winter warmers Iíve had. Hides the alcohol well. Smooth finish with no harshness or burn.

sawbuck (626) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Candied fruit, plum, raisin and cinnamon on the nose. Deep ruby red color, almost brown, with a huge tan head. sweet up front. Plum and raisin, with a hint of molasses. Complex citrus also in the background. Bitterness is dry and cuts somewhat into the sweetness, but sweetness wins out. Slightly watery mouth feel and some alcohol on the finish as well. Nice sipping Belgian by a warm fire on a cold night.

Snifter Look - Brown with red tint or red with brown tint. No head with weak pour. No lacing. Relatively see through. Stone head if there was head. Smell - Sweet. Cherry. Ginger. Malt. Taste - Follows nose well. Plus Bubblegum. Plus Apple. Plus cinnamon. Belgian. Feel - Medium. I canít believe there is so much alcohol. Dries up. Overall - This is the lighter version of my namesake Mad Elf. I couldnít get it in December, so Christmas in July! I like it.
