hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown with crimson flashes and a small, fragile, off-white head. The nose is both smoky and chocolaty, but I’m not picking up any pastrami-like spices here. Medium to full-bodied and lightly creamy with tingly carbonation. The flavor is too sweet, even for my sweet tooth. It’s loaded with chocolate crème and winter spices. Lengthy, syrupy finish. No pastrami-like magic here. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

650 ml bottle shared. Pours a light brown body with a slight brown, thin head. Aromas of spices, bread, cinnamon and spicy notes. Taste was everything you can find in an Easter meal. Cinnamon, bread notes, caramel, coriander seed, spicy notes (from the rye perhaps), malts. Sweet aftertaste, long. Medium body with low carbonation.

Botella de 65 cl en el lupulo. Septiembre de 2013. Cerveza muy especiada de cuerpo ligero - medio con ligeros toques ahumados y tostados. Domina el sabor especiado en general. No está mal aunque acaba siendo un poco empalagosa

Almost opaque dark brown beer with a small tan head. Palate is slightly viscous and with good fine carbonation. Sweetish malts with a little cream. Sweet bubblegum. Fruity spices and mild smoke. Finishes smooth and sweet. Weird! Like taking a bit of a candy floss covered kebab!! Not unpleasant but I could nit drink loads.
