Thanks to Jason for this extra.
A: The pour is an opaque dark brown sort of color with a small off-white head.
S: Big time butter on the nose. As I smell it more, I get sort of a buttery white wine character to it, but it's still more butter than anyone would want in anything. A mild maltiness to go along with.
T: There's a distinct vinous character to the beer; definitely white grapes which provide some sweetness and mild acidity. Again, the butter is pronounced and really takes over and ruins the beer.
M: The body is medium with the carbonation falling toward the low end of medium.
D: If you like drinking clarified butter alongside your chardonnay, this would be perfect for you. A bit too much for me to handle.
