Clean; deep amber color. While the abv is assertive, it’s not extreme in the opening whiffs. This leaves the aromatic door open for biscuity, doughy, almost fruity notes that are appealing; later sniffs reveal deeper notes of cookie batter, yeast, and apple peel. Entry is mildly biting and like dried fruit (dates, raisins); midpalate features an oiliness that’s fitting, but there’s also a toffee or nougat-like aspect that rounds out the flavor profile. Ends on a caramel/candy bar note that’s spirity and piquant.
