Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A – Pours a thick cloudy chestnut brown, with a light beige two finger head that faded quickly. Sticky lacing of small, tight bubbles clings to the glass.
S – Strong aroma of fragrant grassy hops, toffee, and dark fruits.
T – Simply amazing. Initial taste of dank hops with esters of butterscotch, date, sugarplum, black cherry, raisin, crème brulee, and cookie dough, held together with a hearty toffee malt backbone. Flavors are deep, rich and complex. ABV extremely well hidden. Finishes with lingering sweet malt and earthy hops.
M – Medium to full bodied, with subtle carbonation. Works very well with the flavor profile. Sticky finish.
O – What a brew! One for the ages. The richness and complexity of the flavors continuously entices the palate. A beer lovers delight!
