Purchased from Liquor Shed in Casper, $10.99 for the 2013 750ml bottle.
A nice pop when I pulled the cork but no gushing, thankfully, it pours a clear? deep mahogany with a 2 finger hof and of course, nice lacing.
Lots of caramel malt, mixed with some toffee and fruity notes in the smell. Pitted fruits, me thinks. No, I'm thinking of a Bartlett. Anywho, it's a very nice aroma going on.
I do appreciate the pear flavour I'm getting straight off. Toffee follows and something semi sweet..I'll read the label...molasses? Okay. Nothing realy on the bitter side going on but this is not an overly sweet brew either.
Sipping further in, I get a mild heat from the alcohol but it's not a huge distraction.
Close to if not full bodied, medium carbonation, makes for a great mouthfeel, eh?
This is classically delicious and a real joy to sip on. Well worth the price I paid for it.
