Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange pour with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma features vanilla and winter spices. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of rich toffee, vanilla and graham malts, accompanied by seasonal spice rack fun and a nice, acidic/mildly tart component. Finishes tangy, malty and minerally. Bottle shared with the south Florida crew by biggsbowler!

750ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Sweet aroma, some banana, but some blackcurrant berries. Blandish taste, just some banana strings. Dry bitter finish. Later some acetone. Sweet, sticky palate. Pleasantish, but nothing particularly special. Alcohol present later. Gimme a Vitus, please, rather than this.

Hazy brown amber beer, small white head. Nose is creamy, fruity, wheaty, caramel, sugar, banana. Flavor is caramel, fruit, banana, malt, candi sugar, raisiny notes. Lingering caramel and plummy notes, some alcohol. Hides the booze well, palate on the lighter side, so it’s dangerously drinkable.
