3.85/5 rDev +8.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Serving type: 12-ounce bottle. A batch code is printed on the bottle but there is no freshness date.
Appearance: Poured into a pint glass. The color is pale copper. A finger of off-white, buttery head left a thick ring around the edge and a spotted lacing.
Smell: Sweet and malty. Caramel, toffee, red and black licorice. It induces flashbacks of another beer but cannot remember which. (Murphy’s Irish Red?) As it warms, dark fruit plum and raspberry emerge, as well as strawberry and apple sweetness.
Taste: The mouthfeel is thick and chewy — a very welcome surprise. At first, the flavor is somewhat subtle and unimpressive; it offers very little except caramel and toffee sweetness. Hop spice and bitterness come into play as the beer warms, giving it a nice boost, and hints of fruit and licorice also emerge.
Drinkability: Very good stuff. Each sip invites another.
Serving type: bottle
