2013 vintage poured into Mr. Pint.
Appearance: Beautiful, beautiful dark orangish color. Head is slow to dissipate. Leaves a little lacing on the glass as it dies down.
Smell: I could smell this bad boy the moment I poured it from the bottle. WOW. That is a stong, sweet nose. Raisins, for sure. Not really any hops to be detected. Complex.
Taste: That's... interesting. It's softer than last year, but definitely with a hop-forward taste that quickly goes bitter. Weird. It's not as sweet as I was hoping.
Mouthfeel: That bitterness sits around here for a bit.
Overall: I think it needs a little more aging - it's like it's in transition to something spectacular.
Serving type: bottle
