12 oz bottle, batch 71.

Clear, reddish-amber. My careful pour to keep the sediment in the bottle left me little to no head, which then died away to nothing. Careful agitation stirs up wispy bubbles, but that's it. Oh well.

The nose is all sweet malt, perhaps with a hint of some spice waaaaaay in the background.

Taste follows the nose with huge malt sweetness up front. Despite the lackluster head, the mouthfeel is a bit prickly and lively, lightening up the heavy malt presence. Flavors continue with some fruit in the middle (apricot, peach) and the finish is again faint spices and ends faintly bitter. 10% alcohol is pretty much nonexistent.

Superb sipper for cold weather.
