Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head that really sticks around. Nice spicy, molassesy, christmas fruitcakey nose. Creamy medium body, fairly close to still. All those spicy fruitcake notes come back on the mid-palate...cloves, molasses, maybe cinnamon. Mild sweet brown bread finish. Great little holiday celebrator.

On Tap- Chef Paul’s with Jude. 8 oz tulip glass, very dark brown with cream head. No discernible aroma. Body is surprisingly thin. Taste is sweet- not syrupy but rather like granulated sugar. Some sour / tartness in the middle and finish. Average, nothing special.
