This beer poured with a medium, tan colored head. Beer color is a medium reddish-brown. The aroma is fruity and high-alcohol, with a little citrus. There is a bit of citrus to the taste as well. Malty, and a very creamy mouth feel. The bitterness is not excessive, but the hoppy bitter on the front of the taste stays with you all the way through to a lingering sour bitterness on the aftertaste. There is some sweetness in the middle. There is also some spice, and some warmth from the higher alcohol. There is a lot going on in this beer, but if you don't enjoy some bitter then it is probably not for you. I enjoyed it.
