COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Savor it now or let rest - Equinox is a delight served young but robust enough to age well. Hints of rum, dates and figs are complimented by licorice phenolics. Locally made dark candi syrup helps keep a light body in big a beer worthy of rumination.

harrymel (1502) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottled: unk Pours dark honey with copper when lit, then thereís a fleeting etched surface of light tan foam. Really light and flat looking for the style. Smells initially like the inside of an empty black olives can, then some sweet malt, a little bit of banana - not a particularly enjoyable nose. Flavor is booze, bitter, sweet malts, some banana, really boozey and chemical. Thin and lowly carbed for the style. This is not really firing on many/any cylinder for the style.

On Tap at the new "Yard House" in Meridian, ID Deep dark brown with a huge tan head. Warm soft dark malty aromas and flavors with intersting belgian yeast notes mixed in. A belgian sweet stout? Rich and smooth palatte. Very nice

Borefts Beer Festival 5. Day 2. Thanks to Colin for this bottle. Hazy amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little soft and airy. Fine carbonation. Light, dry creamy malt. Dried fruits. Finishes dry and soft. Itís standard stuff but quite drinkable.
