Draught at Upslope. Pours clear mahogany with a large, fizzy, bubbly light tan head, good retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel and cookie malt with nutmeg and cinnamon notes. Earthy hops and fruity esters late. Flavor is malty with a fair amount of hops for a good balance. Fruity with some spices. Medium-full body, sweet, and medium carbonation.
