3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Deep mahogany brown with a foamy khaki head that fizzes out rather quickly. Aroma of toffee, pie spice, alcohol and graham cracker. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, zesty spice, dark fruit and a slight alcohol warming. Medium body with average carbonation. Nice beer, the spices are a bit strong but not too overwhelming.
