Draft at Jerry’s, from Craft Beer Week. Keg marked "Murf’s Old Man". Murky amber with modest, white head, decent legs / Sweet, hot nose of turning orchard fruit, caramel / Medium to full body, creamy, smooth, sweet but sufficient hop balance, a little heat on the finish / Winey flavors of turning apple, raisin, caramel, chocolate, cinnamon, oak? / Very nice. It’s got a kick, so I would guess in the ~10% abv.
