GABF 09. Pours a mostly clear deep brownish amber with a thinning head. Aroma is very fruity almost like a strong dubbel- apple, fig, raisin, date, and some apricot- sweet molasses and brown sugar sweetness and some herbs and earth. Flavor is sharp caramel, toast, crystal harshness, sweet brown sugar and candi syrup, a big fusel and high alcohol- earthy zesty and spiced. Finish is a bit harsh.

Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and an astringent finish. Long duration, heavy sweetness, light acidity and bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Red in Santa Cruz. Pours dark brown with a modest tan head and some wet lacing. Aromas of maple syrup and brown sugar, with slight fruit notes and sweetbread. Flavor is primarily brown sugar sweetness, with some cherry and medicinal notes. Some booziness is evident. Medium full body. Could use more complexity to be honest. Still not bad.
