3.2/5  rDev -22%

Been wanting to try this, and finally got the opportunity.

A - Complex aroma of bread crust, toast, toffee. Low earthy, spicy hops come through at the end. Moderate prune esters add to the complexity.

A - Dark copper color, somewhat hazy. Beige head with tight bubbles stays well.

F - Lots of complex malt: toasty, toffee, molasses, hints of roast. Hops peek through to balance nicely and help dry the finish. Hints of oxidation, but in a good way.

M - Rich and full. Low, pleasant alcohol warmth. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol dries the finish.

O - Well-balanced and complex. Will get this again when colder weather sets in.

Slightly tart dry with an almost sweet aftertaste. Enjoyable and savory. Clear dark amber with big head. Been wanting to try this for long time but didn't want to pay the price. Glad I did.

I'm not really going to go into what I got on flavor or aroma, but if you dig trying to figure out what your tasting, this is THE BEER to experience that with. The taste is complex more so than my girlfriend and I (who I do all of my tastings with) have ever experienced. Just as a teaser: tangerine, lemon/lime, white raisin, white/green grape, cranberry/prune, white bread. It's fun as hell just to try and figure out what you're tasting. Highly recommended. I would unquestionably buy this again. Two fans, through and through, were made tonight. Can't wait to try their entire line-up (especially the stouts!).
