Sometimes fermented drinks contain aromas or flavors that are very distinctively suggestive of something specific (in contrast to the ubiquitous "descriptors" imposed on them by imaginative reviewers!)

This beer smells like Pepto Bismol. I suspect this is a phenomenon of some kind of interference pattern with the last beer I drank (the perfect Hook Norton Twelve Days.) Because within a few minutes it begins to smell more like candycane. Of course, it also smells like brown bread and whisky and caramel.

Nice glossy sweet attack of caramel and butter gives way evenly to fairly intense resiny bitterness. Hard cinnamon candy flavored hops, with lemon and pepper. Pasteurized apple juice sweetner with dried marshmallow. Wood flavors are subdued but serve to structure the large volume of texture and sweetness. The finish is polished and relentlessly bitter.
