Poured from a bomber to a Tulip

A- muddy brown, 2" cloud like off white head

S- spices, root beer, crayons, vanilla, leather, rubber, oak, auto grease, cranberries, prunes, grapes, raisin

T- plum, raisin, dark grapes, prunes, oak, earthy viny notes, vanilla, sour apple, roasted nutty malts, ethanol

M- SO creamy, oily, average carbonation

O- let her warm! It's so complex when it's at near room temp. I sipped it out of the fridge and was hit with booze, i then let it sit and warm and suddenly it was a whole new beer, full of complexities. Vanilla, oak, leather all shown through, one after the other dark fruits began to emerge, plums, grapes, raisins, prunes. Finally roasted nutty malts sprang forth, creating an awesomely balanced brew. I can go on and on as i continue to find more and more flavors/aromas, but i still have half a bomber to enjoy.
