4.4/5 rDev -1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 25.4 oz bottle into a bordeaux wine glass.
A: Deep brown when poured but against light is a deep opaque orange color. Head pours thick and recedes to a thin off white film that lasts throughout the quaff. Lacing seems thick at first but slips down the glass gradually.
S: I smell lightly fried hash browns/potatos with a touch of roasted nuts. A sugary sweetness breaks through eventually revealing maltier undertones. Figs and walnuts.
T: The taste follows the nose except the sweet character is noticed ahead of the earthy tones. Some raw nuts and fall time bread flavors are evident. Theres a spicy tinge I can't quite place. The taste on the back of the palate reminds me of a very smooth and earthy Yunnan tea.
M: Smooth and wholesome. Again, like a luscious Yunnan Gold black tea variety.
O: Delicious. The look and palate of an English Porter but with a spicier and more complex flavor, likely due to the Belgian yeast. The great availability of this beer in my area means I will keep this one in stock in the pantry.
