Can... Clear copper ale with a flimsy, fleeting, white head. The nose is a melange of caramel, white wine and mild oak. Medium to full-bodied and a touch oily with laid-back carbonation. The fllavor offers lovely caramel and toffee, accompanied by light tartness. Good balance for the style, but it does lean a touch sweet, as it should. Finishes rich, caramely and nourishing. Quite the meal. Can courtesy of StFun. Thanks, Josh!

Metallic chestnut colour, little or no head. Vinous nose with fusels, strawberry aroma and sweet-alcoholic smelling. Fusels returning in the flavour; sweet taste with Crème Anglaise, vanilla, alcohol and a vague impression of wood. Very slick, well bodied and rewarding palate. Nice!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster at the Fishers SK. Looks solid; a mildly hazy burnt orange with off-white head. Smells of dark fruit, oak, and vanilla with a fairly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, but more robust and balanced, and with more of a vanilla presence. Mouthfeel is medium full-bodied with a bit of pleasant tartness on the back end. Solid, and tastes better than it smells.
