11.2 oz bottle at Bonaventure Lounge, LA. Dark brown/amber cloudy body with a very nice inch+ white head. Slightly sweet caramel aroma. Flavors of yeast, caramel and a very nice spiciness. Finish seemed a bit weak. I know I missed something because it was served way too cold (typical) and I didn’t have enough time to let it warm. A very nice beer.

11.2 oz bottle - Pours reddish brown with a big, foamy head. The aroma is light and fruity. The flavor strikes a nice balance between the malt sweetness and some bitterness, along with very apparent fruit notes. The palate is very lively and smooth, though it could stand to be a little more full. The finish is dry. This is a very good beer. Though at four bucks for a small bottle being easily the best price I’ve found on it, I’d like to see something a bit more full and complex.
