Pours a dark reddish color. A nice 1 inch tan head. Lacing that coats the chalice then slides down. Lots and lots of yeasties.
Smells spicy and sweet with carmel. Not a lot in my nose now over all that peppery spice.
Ohhh man. My first tatse is almost heaven. Dominate carmel malts with just a touch of funkiness. Dark fruits abound. yeast yeast yeast, yum yum yum. Somewhat alcoholic but hidden well with the malts. This taste is not for the timid!
Mouth feel is sweet up front with a dry swollow. A bit too carbonated. Aftertaste is alcoholic and spicy hops. There seems to be at least 6 "layers" to this beer. Very complex. BUt each sip is consistant until the bottle is gone. NICE!
Serving type: bottle
