I just had one heck of a battle with that cork. It finally came off but not after a battle. Pours out a beautiful amber color. The head is like a huge fluffy white pillow. Tons of bubbles make their way to the top. Very effervesant.
The smell is light and delicate. Soft and sweet. Hints of malt and something grassy come through. The taste is similar. Sweet in the beginning and then lending to some spicy notes. Alcohol kind of hits you half way through. Not as balanced as I would like. I think this is a very fresh ale and could use some time in the cellar.
By they way, I bought this 750ml bottle at Kappy's in Wellington Circle for $9.99 and it included a small glass.

05/15/14 On tap. A fine, fine beer. Caution, as this 10% ABV bomb is deceptive. It's as slick & smooth as your grandma said it would be. I find this to be a faultless beer...unless you plan on having more than a few (2 or 3). The seduction lies in the ultra inviting balance bitter & sweet (which should be a good lesson in life). With temperance this could prove to be an ally. I, for one, have learned to live with it, gladly.
