Flavor: Sweet malts, lots of caramel, fruits such as plums, bread, spicy, pepper, low bitterness but enough to make beer cloying, alcohol

Mouthfeel: medium full body, med low carbonation,

Overall: Sweet malt and fruity, spicy that finishes with lots of caramel. Alcohol presences seems a little too much for an 8% beer.

Bottle shared with some small plates at Bottega in Yountville. Pours dark brown and mostly opaque with a big creamy off white head. Some floated in the bottom. Aroma of chocolate, spicy rye, some brown sugar sweetness. Very pleasant. Flavor follows the smell closely with some light chocolate notes, a bit of spicy rye that gives it a nice character, sweetness, some douhginess. The body is a full medium with medium carbonation. It goes down pretty easy despite having some nice heft on it. I could see this as a light winter warmer or pleasant in the summer. A really mild beer but with plenty of flavor that pairs very nicely with food. Good stuff.

A: A deep, pu erh tea red with a raw cream head that sticks around if the beer is warm enough.

S: Caramel, clove, banana bread.

T: Bread. A nutty, almost pecan-like flavor. A dash of maple syrup, nutmeg, and bananas.

M: Slightly syrupy with a bit of spice.

O: An impressive take on a rye beer. There are elements of a weizenbock (ryezenbock?) and a character approaching a barley wine. This is probably the base for Sour In the Rye, an amazing beer in its own right. I'd love to see this aged in spirits barrels.
