Bottle @ home. Thanks, Pat. Hazed copper pour with a thin layer of off-white foam. Smells like apple, pear, spices, and raisin. A bunch of caramel and toasted grains as well. Flavor is oddly bitter. Tons of bitter, dry spices. Sweet baked apple, some burnt grain, and burnt mashmallow. No thanks.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 Bottle, courtesy of saultbauls... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a hazy brick red with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is sweet with lots of brown sugar, spices, apples... it smells very much like a dessert.
The flavor is Christmas cookies, some light bitterness is there, itís nicely sweet but note overbearingly so. Itís got some apple to it, but surprisingly little.
I donít now, itís pretty nice if youíre in the mood for something like this.

Bottle from brewery. Subtly winey Belgian ale with strong apple cinnamon flavor. Oddly devoid of aroma.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear dark amber. Has a faint aroma of apple and cinnamon. A tart taste of apples, dark fruits and malts. A sour aftertaste. Not a fan of the tart and sourness.
