12 oz bottle. Pours ruby brown with a minimal beige head. Smells of candy, sugar, apple. and malt. Tastes of alcohol, brown sugar, carnival candy, overly sweetened lager. Not saying this is bad, but very unusual. Aftertaste is sticky sweet. I’m glad I tried this, but probably won’t try it again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep amber brown with a creamy, light tan head. The head lingers leaving behind okay lacing. Notes of caramel, boozy fruit, and a little earth in the nose. Low carbonation with a sticky mouthfeel. Sweet, boozy taste, with hints of roasted malt, bread, and caramel. A cloying, sticky sweetness remains for awhile. The booze isn’t well hidden and there is a lot of sweetness. Best reserved for after dinner.
