Sampling a 2011-2012 bottle poured into a snifter. the beer is a gift from my brother Brian.
The beer pours a clear mahogany color with minimal sudsy eggshell head foaming up and receding to a thin edge layer very quickly.
Aroma is a little caramel and some vinous white grape. The nose is fairly muted though and I dont get much even after an agitating swirl and my nose buried in the glass.
The first sip reveals a lighter than anticipated body with very fine and tingly carbonation.
The flavor is similar to nose with some white grape and caramel mixing together. I also get just a little bit of some sort of spiciness, maybe cinnamon? Not sure, but something hits the back of my palate on each swallow. I do get a little peppery booze but no heat on the finish.
A very easy to drink beer, a little light on flavor and nose but otherwise decent.
