Bottle. Pours a dark brune with a creamy tan head. Spicy fruity spritz pepper and apple aroma. Cinnamon and some yeasty spices. Sweet cane sugar with vinous hints and some apple like sweet and tart flavor. Some alcohol warming that is well masked by the spiciness and moderately sharp carbonation. Decent brew.
