look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours out a bit darker than I was expecting, which is to say pretty dark, with a small coarse tan head.
Aroma is a big hit of yeast followed by a vinous alcohol scent. definitely has that unibroue yeast smell.
Taste. mulberries, smoke, oak, grapes, a dark chocolate truffle with a gooey chocolate center, plums, sourdough bread, and i'm sure i'm missing a lot. the flavours cetainly come in waves. the excessive carbonation does nothing to advance the flavour profile, instead, it detracts from it by exacerbating the alcohol characteristics.
mouthfeel i have to mark down due to it being overcarbonated. i even went so far as to shake the 750 a bit before pouring my second glass. seems as though I didn't shake it enough.
drinkability is great, though, you are sure to be feeling pretty good after polishing off one of these 750s.
this is a classic brew, grab two if you find it. also, there was a little leftover in the bottle after pouring two pints, so i decided to just drink that bit right from the bottle, for fun. that was the fruitiest and best swig of the whole 750. bizarre.
