Brown color with thin body and modest head. Aroma and taste were a unique combination of toasted, sweet, bitter and a touch of sour. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Appearance: opaque, ruddy brown, small head.
Aroma: caramel & nuts, nice and malty, good and toasty.
Taste: medium-bodied, with flavor of nuts, and toffee. Dry finish. Grows in complexity through the life of the drink. Getting a deeper feel that reminds me of a Belgian dubbel...makes me wonder what the malts are. Hops seem to be on the way-down-low, but are around here somewhere.
Missing something, though, could use a little this, a little that, to make it memorable.
But quite good...As an autumnal seasonal, not bad at all...I can feel the warmth, already.
