WOW This was reccomended to me by the bartender at yard hose, and i;n glad i accepted. this was a great beer. full flavor and body, but not overpowering or overlingering on the palete. this is a drinking beer, this is not mich ultra or coors ligh where downing a pitcher in under 5 mins is condsidered enjoyment, ie to get a ton of alcohol in your system. this beer though is unique with it's 10.5% alcohol, you dont need to down massive quantities to feel relaxed, this isnt a football party beer, it's a beer to grab after a long days work and let yourself unwind and relax.
Serving type: on-tap

Had this from a 22oz. bottle at Madame Janette's in Aruba.
WOW! what a find. Succulent dark and sticky fruits and yeasty spice explode from the goblet. It is a symphony of luscious malty sweets and warming alcohol goodness. Very promising.
One sip and I'm addicted to this beer for life! There are layers of fruits to pull apart; plum, green melon, figs, banana, dark cherries, and more. It's delightfully yeasty, with raw dough and all the accompanying spice. There's a nibble of artfully added hops toward the end. It's sweet and fruity while maintaining it's dignity.
The mouthfeel is medium big, with a very creamy, full texture. It's ever so gently carbonated and really feels like velvet in my mouth. I lick my goblet clean when I am finished, it's that good!
