A dark golden color with a white head. Really fruity nose. Lots of tropical pineapple notes, a bit of mango, apple, and some pear. A hint of alcohol, tons of spices, and some sweet caramel. Big malt sweetness on the palate. Some caramel, brown sugar, and a lot of fruit esters and hop flavors as well. Pineapple, pear, grape, and apple are noticeable. Some spice notes, a light yeast flavor, and some hints of alcohol.
