UPDATED: NOV 6, 2004 Draught at Lucky Baldwins, Pasadena
Murky brown in colour with a modest tan head. Sweet malty aroma with plenty of fruit and spice in the nose. Thick, rich complex flavor with a bevy of fruit and spice. I drank this with chicken curry and the spice and flavor still managed to shine through. Nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Some interesting fruit notes as well with a bit of grape skin astringentcy.

Light, sweet flavors of fruit, spices and flowers. Very smooth with the 8% ABV not detected. This was delicious, I wish Craftsman would bottle their beers!

Pours a hazy amber color with a thick creamy tan colored head. The nose has a spicy note of clove to it that is joined by a nice malty background component, both of which make sure that they are not passed by. The beer has a medium-bodied fullness to it, at least for a Bier De Garde. The taste is quite spicy, I get notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, clove (dominant), and a certain sweet component to it. There is a bit of fruitiness here as well that reminds me of apples, plums, and raisins. This is definitely interesting, and I like how the fruitiness mixes with the spices, made more remarkable by the fact that there is only supposed to be a bit of rosemary in here as far as spices go.
