3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Let me start by saying that I’m not a big fan of spiced beers. Nonetheless this beer impressed me. It starts of with a tan head with good retention laying on top of a dark brown beer with a red hue. Nose is subtly spicy and a little sour and reminds me of worcestershire sauce. The flavor begins mildly roasted bitter going into fruitiness ending in a long and dry finish. A beer that is wonderfully balanced between an almost stout like roastiness and subtle spicing. Soft carbonation and easy mouth feel makes this an easy drinking experience. Well done.

Heavy and fragrant aroma. The taste, however, is a little thin, unfortunately.
