3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Pony. Deep brown pour with no head at all. The nose is fairly spicy. Soft black pepper and apricot and a little bit of cocoa. Fruity and tropical with distinct notes of pineapple and clove along with a touch of light roastiness. The yeast is quite expressive and they seem to have coaxed a lot of spice and fruitiness. The beer is quite sweet on the back of the palate much to its detriment. Warming intensifies the fruit but it also makes the sweetness more apparent.
