2/11/13. 750mL bottle - thanks, Jackson! How does this not have more ratings being bottled and all already? Deep brown pour, some ambers/reds under the light, mostly on the edges, under a nice, thick tan head that cuts to a murky ring but coats the glass almost completely in lace. Lightly sweet aroma that I suppose hints at marshmallow and chocolate (with honey) vaguely, but there’s a certain almost floral bitterness to the aroma that when combined with the light smokey tea definitely makes it smell like soap/shampoo/potpourri. The flavor, sadly, is much the same. There’s a definite sweetness with some chocolate, marshmallow, and honey, as well as malty beer aspects, but there is a lingering bit of a bitter potpourri aspect. I can’t place it 100%, but it definitely reminds me of soap/shampoo/candles in an overwhelming manner. The lingering mild oakiness isn’t helping the case and there’s also a touch of metal/peppers. I was ready to love this. I’m sad. :(
