4.8/5 rDev +13.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Note: This is one of my all-time favorite beers. It's just a fantastically well-balanced brew, flavorful and robust.
Appearance: Pours a thick, hazy brown with minimal head and lacework.
Smell: Hops, malt, cloves, raisins, and faint hints of coriander.
Taste: Brown sugar at the beginning, almost like a soda fountain Root Beer that's been undercarbonated. Mid-palate brings out the hops and the malt, with strong plum/raisin notes. Finish is short-to-moderate, with cloves and oranges on the back of the throat, and just a hint of anise. Also a mild alcohol sensation.
Mouthfeel: Just a hair too spritzy for this flavor. I think a smaller bead would allow a more thorough enjoyment of the beer.
Drinkability: Dangerously drinkable, given the alcohol content. I can, and have, thrown back 3 or 4 of these in short order, only to regret it later.
Serving type: bottle
