Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at CCB tasting room. Poured into a CCB snifter.
A: A nice, deep reddish brown. Forms a small, just off-white head.
S: Tropical fruit, citrus hop aroma.
T: Dried tropical fruit (mango, maybe guava? figs?), citrus & pine hop flavors, but not overly bitter. There is a bit of spiced character. The sweetness in the beer reminds me of caramelized sugar.
M: Heavy, sticky mouthfeel. There is certainly an alcohol presence but, given the ABV, I think well-hidden.
O: Definitely good, and I left the tasting room with multiple bottles. I was just a touch underwhelmed though. Personal opinion - I think this leans more toward a hoppy barley wine, although my drinking buddy disagreed.
Serving type: on-tap
