Appearance: This beer was purchased in the winter of 2009 and consumed in the summer of 2012. Poured from a 355 mL bottle with an expiration date of 02/10/12 into a chalice. Pours a dull fig color of brown. There is a fingers worth of creamy, evenly dispersed tan head. A very enticing appearance leaves one eager to explore its matte brown exterior further.
Smell: The smell is the essence of Christmas on a farm. It has a beautiful combination of liquored sweet fruit, molasses, a fresh essence of farm (grassy and floral), and a hint of spicy dark chocolate fondue.
Taste: Chewy, medicinal, very alcoholic tiramisu brownie dipped in spiced chocolate fondue. Firstly, an alcoholic soaked cherry flavor lays foundations for the onslaught of spiced chocolate. Grassy hops are balanced perfectly against the chocolate, which eventually subsides to leave an ethereal spiced, alcoholic cherry flavor that sticks around for the long haul.
Mouthfeel: Dry, a bit chewy but smooth. The alcohol, while present as an essential part of any beer seems too much a part of this beer’s flavour to actually be measured as an entity outside of the taste itself.
Drinkability: This beer not only puts a smile on your face, it enlightens you and warms your heart. This beer makes me yearn for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, snow falling outside, and endless bottles being shared by the crackling fire. Perhaps this is where it was conceived or the first test batch enjoyed. For some, chicken soup, mac n cheese, and ice cream are comfort foods; this beer is my comfort food.
