L11-482; 063929; poured into a Chimay chalice.
Pours a maroon/mahogany color with a righteous two inches of coarse tan foam. Looks familiar, in a good way.
Plummy, grape, fig, steakhouse bread, sweet nuttiness, almost vinous. Too mellow to call it elixir-y, but there's a medicinal note that I like. Very soft in the nose, and creamy. Refined. Love it.
More plum and grape and sort of wine flavors crossed with darker brown fruits. Fig, raisin, and a note of dried tobacco leaf. Yeasty and caramelized. Rich and with some sweetness. Just great stuff.
Nice wet mouthfeel. Lots of soppy goodness. Tapered carbonation that slowly sweeps the palate clean. Very little stick.
Tremendously self-realized beer. Classically amazing. No further comment.
