My God, I now know I will visit Philadelphia more often. Monks rules! I think I'm going to keep calling until they get Westy in...
Anyway, onto the review
Appearance: Poured in a Chalice. Brown, with a thick, rocky tannish head. Cloudiness in the body. Head lasted for the entire glass...ample lacing.
Aroma: Good, intricate malt aroma. Raisins and figs seem to come to the forefront, with a fruity apple character providing a background contrast. Caramel maltiness present throughout.
Taste: Slight figginess initially, fading to a sweet caramel apple flavor. Prominence flavor of raisins/dates from the malt backbone. Alcohol provides a nice warming character that compliments the sweet fruitiness of the brew.
Mouthfeel: High alcohol, a bit lacking in body, for my tastes (with the amount of alcohol present in this brew)
Drinkability: If I didn't have a talk to go to, this would have been a repeat performer there and then, regardless of the $10 price tag.
Serving type: bottle
