Had this many times in the bottle and recently had it on tap at Isaac Newtons in Newtown, PA. Just a regular tap (not nitro) but I had to say that so I could review this again...
Appearance: Dark brown with not much head at all.
Aroma: Dark fruits and some malts.
Taste: WOW!! This beer is great in the bottle and is exceptional on tap. It is smooth with dark fruits (especially grapes, slight hint of raisons and figs as well, but not too much fruits to ruin the smooth malts that follow. The 12% is SO well hidden that this beer should come with a warning. At $9.00 a glass, I forced myself to stop at three, but I could drink this all night. It pairs well with spicy food (in my opinion), but does so well just by itself.
Overall: This is in my top 3 beer list of all time and is a cant-miss. The bottles are easier to find and are well worth the $11.00 price, but if you can find this on tap, this is a brilliant beer. Cheers!!
Serving type: nitro-tap
