Unfortunately I didn't have the patience to let this one settle. It was a gift from my roomate and I figured we should just try it right now. That being said, its quite cloudy. Couple chunks too.
Very nice nose. Very earthy with some nice rich deep caramel and raisin smells as well. Very nice nose.
Very nice flavors here. Really smooth and well rounded bready type notes, but its not too smooth. There is a nice earthy kind of edge to it as well that really balance the semi sweet caramel kind of bread flavors. Just a touch of alcohol in the finish with just barely some lingering atringency...maybe from the CO2??
Mouthfeel is right on for the style. But its not quite perfect. Definately on the thin side which is right for the style I think.
Very drinkable. Dangerously so for a 9.2% beer.
Serving type: bottle
