2010 750ml bottle poured into a chalice.
A finger of off white/faint brown head is produced. The body is brown with an abundance of ruby red hues when held to the light. Dare I say this is a sexy looking beer? I must. Lots of eye candy lacing is left.
On the nose this has a definite alcohol presence which at 11% it gets a little hard to totally hide. There is also some caramel sweetness, dark fruits, and bready notes to balance out that alcohol and make it a pleasant smelling brew.
Mmm...big bready notes, a bit of molasses, caramel, dark fruits like raisins and figs with an alcohol kick.
There is a full body here that is fairly smooth. The carbonation isn't too much and works nicely. Slightly sticky on the lipsss.
This thing is pretty wonderful. I was hoping to keep it around for a little bit before cracking it, but I broke down and I'm glad I did. If the sweetness and alcohol levels were toned down ust a tad this would be a home run. It's still amazing, like a Bengie Molina triple.
