Thanks to hopsbreath for this bomber. Split and poured into a New Belgium globe glass.
A: Very close to opaque with hints of a very dark translucent reddish brown on the edges. Very slight, quickly dissipating head with large, thin bubbles.
S: Interesting... hint of spices, fruit sweetness. Smooth, slightly dry. Very unique malt composition as well, very hard for me to put a finger on what, exactly.
T: Tastes strongly of pears and brown sugar. This is extremely unique, but I enjoy it. A little bit of alcohol heat. Slightly dry in the mouth as well. Grape flavors are very slight, but pretty well balanced.
M: Feels a little bit thinner than I was expecting, but as the beer warms, it fits really well. Carbonation is very low, a little to the detriment of the beer as a whole.
D: Very nice. A slow drinking beer, but the flavor is excellent and extremely interesting; fun to drink.
Really an interesting beer. Picked up a bottle to age, I'm curious to see how this develops.
Serving type: bottle
