LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 1, 2011
At 38 Degrees Ale House in Alhambra, CA
Appearance: Pours a deep ruby with a creamy tan cap that subsides to white edges. While sitting on the table it looks dark, when you lift it up to ambient light, itís fairly translucent.

Aroma: Alcohol, apples, cherry, wood.

Taste: Burnt caramel, toast,alcohol, spicy hop, oak, spicy candy apple.

Mouthfeel: Thick, syrupy with modest carbonation.

Overall: Another tasty, boozy sipper. Iíve had this a few years ago at a festival, and donít remember it being this big, boozy and bold.
