Draft. Hazy golden amber color, whitebhead. Paired with fried chicken and waffles, but surprisingly it was not a good combo, mainly because of the sweetness and heavy spice of the beer. So that’s it, that’s my rating. Too sweet and too much spice. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2010
Tasting at Papsøbrokensail (16633) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Cloudy light amber color. The aroma is a mix of whatever I don’t want in a beer: soap, cinnamon, herbs. High carbonation, malt flavor, herbal, some residual sweetness, strong fake cinnamon flavor; high alcohol perception. Messy.
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a thin ring of tan foam around the outside of the glass.
S: Tons and tons of pie spices such as cinnamon, all spice, and nutmeg. The bourbon aroma is plentiful as well, providing quite a bit of booze along with the usual oak and vanilla.
T: The vanilla flavor is really nice and smooth here. Fairly sweet, but the bourbon flavor helps to mitigate that a bit, and the intense cinnamon and nutmeg flavors do an even better job of this.
M: The body is maybe on the thin side of medium with a low to medium carbonation.
D: I could see this being great, but the bourbon and spices are just overdone at this point. Ratman197 (15224) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2011
