Pretty light tasting for style and considering alcohol percentage, which is well hidden. Pours dark amber with God head and lacing. Light raisins. Some florals. Light sweet finish. Tap at rustico.

TH28 (337) - - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle. Packaged 9/11/14. Appearance: Light brown and clear with reddish/orange hue. Minimal cream colored foam cap. Aroma: Orange peel, coriander, and Belgian fruity esters (apple). Hint of maltiness. Taste: Rich caramel malt sweetness with intense spice and orange peel. Noticeable pear fruitiness and nutmeg like spice. Like a spiced quad. Just enough bitterness to balance the intense malt and spice flavors. Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderately high carbonation with noticeable alcohol warmth. Finish: Finishes malty with lingering spice, pear, and orange peel. Overall: A really well done spiced quad. Orange peel, spices, and Belgian esters combine perfectly

commonmac (985) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2015
12 oz bottle purchased at Haskells for March Madness. Consumed with commomshawn and rosskyle. Very appealing amber/plum color with a slight off white head. Aroma of dark fruit, sweetness, almost berries, and vanilla. Taste is in the realm of a Belgian quad with the malty sugars taking center stage with a strong supporting cast of dark fruits and alcohol. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Plenty of spices. Really impressive beer that seems like a perfect representation of the style. Great beer! This is a special moment for me in my rating career...#500. Iíd like to thank all the people who helped get me here and am humbled by the opportunity to continue onward on the rating journey.

rondphoto (3626) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 15, 2015
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy amber brown, full beige head cover, sheets of lace. Aroma of caramel and spices. Taste is full-bodied toffee and malt that adds spice on the swallow, then moves to a finish where alcohol obliterates everything else. Tastes very strong, the warm staying in the throat long after the finish. Seems almost too much for a beer.

Arayaga2 (2062) - portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Even-toned river brown, with a cm of tan head. Aroma is light creamsicle citrus, with notes of apple and tootsie roll. Taste is like that, but unexpectedly rich, with spicing that hides just on the other side of identifiability. Sweet up front, but finishes dry. Quite nice. $3/12oz

For me, this is a miss. Itís not lush as a beverage (itís more dense and steely in texture); itís not florid & open in its aromas (most flavor comes from sourness and bitterness on the tongue), and the flavors are confused and unpleasant - - tree bark, aluminum, and dusty spice rack. Itís lean, metallic, and close to astringent.

12oz bottle. Poured a cloudy dark amber color with a huge off-white head, settles quickly, but remains a solid small white head. Aroma was dark fruits, some green apple notes. Boozy notes. Caramel, sweetness. Lots of boozy dark fruit notes.
