got this as a st. patty's gift, not a bad gift at all!
i've tried their regular oak aged beer and suppose should get one to review. i like their product, nice packaging, nice bottle, nice color.
A: looks just like the picture, pours very nice, lacing is good and is retained throughout the drink. beautiful color, very impressed, like looking at it a lot.
S: i detected spice straight away with some rum hints definately present. very pleasing and not boozy at all. some sweet grain smells were also noted along with a cherry scent.
T: initial sweetness that i can only compare to cherry mixed with malt complimented by a tangy spicy taste. after it's been in the mouth a while, hints of woody/rum tastes can be noted, but arent prominant.
M: good, thickens up a bit as its in the mouth, initially thin but finishes quite well.
D: overall very pleasant, the different taste makes this beer special and i did enjoy it very much.
note: the packaging revs this beer up quite a lot and impressed the friends saying "that's a beer?"
so i need to admit, felt a lot richer than i am pulling this one out of the fridge next to a tub of ice fishing bait...
give it a try, something different to enjoy.
