Dark brown that appears black in the glass. A massive tan colored head forms and is slow to settle to a very thick cap. A moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass.
Aromatic from the spices. I would guess cardamom or ginger. Smells like a ginger bread cookie or one of those Scandenavian deserts that are popular around the holidays in this region. The spice overwhelms the other components of this beer.
Flavor does not work for me. The spice, rye, and spruce do not work for me. They compete and do not compliment each other. Some people might enjoy this flavor but I do not. Some alcohol flavor in the finish. Slightly cloying spice aftertaste.
Superbly bottle-conditioned as all Olvalde Farm beers are. No exception here.
Not successful to this drinker although it is obviously superbly crafted. The flavor just does not appeal to me.
