Finally getting around to drinking this. Snowing hard, its an inside all day type of day.
Pour produces an inch of off white head, thick sudz, leaving a solid cap of retention. thick lace clings the glass. Pale copper color, transparent.
Aroma is a little disappointing though, mild caramel malt and also mild sweet candied hops and herbal spice.
Taste delivers and then some! Is Holy Shit a proper term to describe a beer? This is Holy Shit! flavor.
Starting out quite sweet, mixing with malt explosion and hops that bring bitters, herbal, slight mint and mango deliciousness. No flavor indications that this is over 10% either.
Feel is slick and full with a wisp of creaminess and carbonation balance.
