    Brewing company: DuClaw
    ABV: 17.3%
    Location: Baltimore, md
    IBU: 70

    Looks: a beautiful amber ale. Light small bubbles

    Nose: sweet but not cloying. Peaches and cinnamon with a hint of Apple like a pie in the oven.

    The taste: starts with a tart peach flavor with a hint of cinnamon. Middle cinnamon and almost drying. The end is like an Apple pie generously flavored with spicy cinnamon. I mean the good spicy cinnamon. At no point is this beer "sweet" the sweet fruit flavors come through but the beer itself is not sweet it's just nice mild fruit and spice flavors. After you're all finished there's a slight malt and hops flavor left in your mouth.

    If you have a chance buy it it's definitely worth trying at least once. Hopefully I'll have the money to buy another soon lol.
