Served with a smallish, cream colored head and lots of lace. Color is a cloudy brown amber. Aroma is super malty, vineous, yeast, caramel, toffee, fruit. Flavor’s very similar to nose with toffee, caramel, malt, yeast, carbonic tang all in the fore! Body and carbonation are faultless. Finish is malt, carmel, toffee and a touch of fruit while of average length. Luscious beer!

Effervescent yeast as well as a mix of citrus and dark fruit in the aroma. The flavor is a mix of dark fruit (raisins, plums, etc.) with a good maltiness and not too dominated by the alcohol. A great BSA.

Nice dried fruit and nutty malt aroma profile. Creamy mouthfeel, smooth on the palate with just a touch of sweetness. Alcohol is well-concealed. Overall a rich, well made beer.

Pours very dark, with a way too much carbonation, so that the initial pour is all head. A slow pour yields an overcarbonated glass. Aroma is big, with vanilla and figs, and hint of spice. Flavor is more spicey, with sweat fig and raisin. This bottle finished with a slightly odd off taste, maybe cardboard, which is a negative. Overall, this is a nice beer, although I don’t know that it stands out from this brewers really great regular brews. I could see buying a bottle a year and storing one, but otherwise I’ll probably pass on this.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a dark brown color with a 2-3" fluffy head. This beer is very similar to Abt 12, I can’t see or taste much difference between the two. Both very good beers.

Glass. Pour is nice and bubbly. I got a voluminous head that filled the whole glass without a huge pour, haha. Nice and dark, like a burnt bread color with a off white head. Smelled of spices; yeasty with notes of ginger and clove. Some banana in the mix. Very pleasing. Tasted similar and malty with tons of spicy yeast flavors. Very appealing with well hidden alcohol. Warming and soothing to the core. Nice and drinkable. Great.
