Poured from a bomber into a snifter. Dark brown, tan head. Excellent lacing!
The nose is all cloves. Talk about Cloverfield!
Thankfully, the taste isn't all cloves. Something akin to Sublimely Self Righteous brewed with cloves, only much sweeter.
A very interesting beer, no doubt. Would I get it again? Probably not. But it's certainly worth a try for the sheer uniqueness of the drinking experience.
