Uncorks with a loud pop and some force. Always a good start!
Pours a ruddy clear brown/red with a nice fluffy off-white head. Leaves a small amount of lace on the glass.
Smell is quite powerful with brown sugar, roasty malts, fruitcake and caramel. It also contains some red wine notes. I kept thinking of the Cotes du Rhone I had last night as I was drinking this beer. I had trouble detecting the alcohol in the nose despite the 10% abv.
Sweet caramel, brownsugar, and some hop bitterness that comes through similar to a Ricola cough drop. More like bittering herbs (herbes de provence?) than hops. An interesting combination. The beer finishes with a long sweet caramel flavor and alcohol warmth. My lips are sticky!
Mouthfeel has some bite to it, but it is not annoying. Feels thick and creamy.
This one is a sipper for sure. Sort of like a bitter dessert wine. Almost a shame I am drinking this in 92 degree heat (of course the a/c makes that manageable). Too much too fast will make my head spin!
