11.2 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a dark ruby with lots of sediment floaties throughout. Beige head of foam with moderate retention. The beer smells a lot like a spiced beer with brettanomyces and a belgian yeast strain working together. I get sweet cinnamon, cardamom, light smoke, licorice, clove, candi sugar, and molasses. Sweet and spicy taste. Bigger body and a chewy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Overall, decent. I would be happy to enjoy this beer again someday.
