On tap at Underground Bluz. Bell's is a brewery that offers very good beers while taking risks on unique formulas as well (Cherry Stout, for example). This is one of their best. And it just so happens to be in my favorite style.
Smell - Malty with caramel and apricot syrup. A bit bready as well. Citrus and peach also lurking.
Appearance - A beautiful pour with a thick white head and a rich amber color. A lot of lacing.
Mouthfeel - Thick and creamy on the palate. Medium-heavy body.
Taste - Surprisingly, very little alcohol burn for a 10.5ABV. The hoppiness of the beer is undeniable, but the bitterness is so moderated by the malty flavor up front that the bitter finish is welcome and necessary. Some pine with the citrus.
Drinkability - Drinkable and delicious. Give me a night with no where to go and I could get lost in this brew. One of the very best I've had.
Serving type: on-tap
