On tap at brewery. Aroma is big with cough syrup, fruits. Dark amber hue. Palate is full bodied and thick with an oily mouth feel and soft carbonation. Was not impressed at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewpub, Bellaire. Hazy dark orange-brown body, cola-like; medium clumping light beige head. Spicy, toasty nose with notes of peachskin. Body lighter than expected, spicy, with light banana and clove esters and lots of toast, caramels, and toffee. Dry and rather light for the style.
