I've had this fine quaff many times and it has never disappointed. This time however I started off with my bomber which is about a year old at a warmer 62-64 degrees. Went with a very bold pour to release some of gas/carbination into a St B Chalis. Let's rock?
Oh yeah! The head and aroma are all there but break down a little quicker into the magic. The first two step sips are perfection. The slight sweet candy malt, moderate dry fruit and hop just what I was hoping for in depth of flavor. Perfect. The alcohol is warm, compliments but does not over power even on a warm day. Hard to find in such a strong brew.
Had to semi gulp/chug the remainder (come on most of have done it) before it got too warm but then two bottles split among friends solves this dilemma.
Still a killer, one of the best beers I have ever had, any style, any season.
Hard to believe Westy 12 would dominate in a blind taste test but I would love to eat my words. Anyone want to shut me up? Please?
