Picked this up as a single 12 oz at Mac’s Downtown, Atlanta, GA, USA. I’ve not seen this in Atlanta before (in any form) so I was pleased to be able to get hold of it.
Nice looking clear amber pour with an impressive pillowy, ivory head, a spotty film on the surface and some good lacing. Nice looking.
Some mild spice in the aroma, but much more pronounced in the taste. Dark holiday spice with some fruits, all supported by a solid malt backbone. Good bitterness in the finish. Smooth and sweet.
To me this is reminiscent of Sam Adams Old Fezzy. Not quite as good, or cultured (a bit more edge) but a really decent beer that I would be happy to have a sixer of.
