On Tap

K 'n B Wine Cellars
San Diego, CA

Dark brown with some dark ruby and purple edges with a thick, moderately sized light khaki colored head that leaves streaks of lace down the glass.

The aroma is a combination of dark fruits, dark bread, a bit of molasses or brown sugar, and and earthy character as well.

The flavor too is quite nice with dark fruits and bready malts combining nicely and hiding the alcohol well. Straightforward and drinkable.

The only downside to this beer, to nitpick, is it's mouthfeel. The carbonation seems a bit too high and is sort of prickly in the mouth.

Very nice; these guys are making exceptional beer right from the jump! (665 characters)

On tap at the Blind Lady in San Diego. Poured in a tulip glass. Small head that quickly dissipated. Dark brown color with decent lacing. Smells nutty, roasty. Pretty strong. Getting a strong taste of nuts and spice. Pleasant. Mouthfeel is thin for a beer of this type and color. Deceiving because you don't taste the strong alcohol. I enjoyed this beer but would be careful about having more than one. (401 characters)

This beer is as close to going to belgium and having a westy as possible. Very smooth and dangerous at 9.1 abv. Roasted coffee notes and a fine finish. Mouthfeel is silky and low carb. Perfection. This beer is a must try and I hope it will be around as a staple societe beer. Will need to try again soon. (304 characters)

Last but not least, least but not last... Nah, lets be real: another average sucker at best. A lil bit in the nose, a lil bit on the tongue, ok... but Raul needs more than that!

If you're going to bring your milkshake to the yard, next time make sure that you use whole milk.

Peace! (286 characters)
