12 oz bottle poured into Newcastle Geordie Schooner glass
A - Pours with a thin layer of head that dissipates quickly. A ring of bubbles lasts. Some lacing. Beer is a nice burnt copper color.
S - Wonderful aroma of vanilla and "cereal grain" malt character.
T - Very malt forward. Maybe a little on the husky side, but the darker malts push through. Heavy malt in the aftertaste. Some fruitiness, presumably from esters. A bit of a tanginess in the finish.
M - Nice and soft up front. Nice dryness in the aftertaste. Some oily coating, too. Enjoyable.
O - Glad I tried this. Thanks to hdelavega for this bottle. This is definitely more of a "malt" beer than I tend to prefer, but it still had great drinkability. Wouldn't be my go to beer, but I hope to have it again. I bet it would be GREAT with pub food and strong cheese. Oh man, is it lunchtime?
