Bottled. Pours a deep gold with orange-tan head. Sharp, sweet aroma of grapes. Pleasant, warm flavor of alcohol and bread up front, with spicy finish. Smooth mouthfeel, light to medium bodied. Alcohol is quite noticeable, but well balanced with the flavor of this beer. Very enjoyable beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a clear, lighter amber color. There was a small off white head that left little lacing. Decent aroma. A bit of toasted malts. Possible some earthy hops also. No noticeable sweetness. The taste is decent. Toasted malts and slight biscuit notes. It has just a hint of bitterness and is very smooth. Nice!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Strong aromas of warm buttered dinner rolls, caramel, and citrus come through initially. As it settles down, more of a bread crust note comes through. It pours a clear, effervescent orange-yellow with an off-white micro to small bubbled head with a soft appearance. A thick-medium ring is retained as well as a mostly full, fuzzy surface. Nice thick stripes of lace are left behind with some webbiness in between. The taste is a medium sweet with a medium light bitter. The oily beer has a medium body with fizzy carbonation. Burnt and toasted qualities are most noticed at first with some caramel and cola, followed by some sweet citrus undertones at the finish. Caramel, toasted bread, and citrus linger for a bit in the aftertaste.

on tap @ Barleycorn’s / Lakeside Park KY --- Clear dark amber with a full white head, bands and polka dots of lace. Taste is lightly spiced caramel malt that grows through the palate, turning slightly bitter in the end. Nicely conceived, well-balanced.
