look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Growler to stemmed tulip pint. Keg to pint ~ 3 hours.

Look- Medium amber, half-finger of tight, frothy head. Good retention for a growler, nice lacing.

Smell- Caramel, toasted biscuit, cream soda, full, herbal undertone.

Taste- Mild, toffee-oatmeal feel. Light herbal, vaguely smoky something but dominated by a robust browned biscuit. Earthy bitterness and mild roast aftertaste.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, medium carb. Silky, full, fairly dry finish. Cleaner than anticipated. Mild-moderate warming for the ABV and style.

Overall- Atypical, but certainly welcome. Absolutely worth trying, I'll definitely be looking for it.

Serving type: growler

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A growler purchased from Premium Draught in Houston. I am very happy to see this.

A: Pours a dark, nearly opaque ruby red/brown color. An ultra fine tan head rises to two fingerings. Ultra fine bubbles, incredibly silky and creamy head. Plenty of lace is left as well.
S: Oh man, I like this. Toasted malt, light smoke/peaty aromas, and wood. Wow, I did not know this was oak aged until I looked it up on their website. Chocolate, light caramel sweetness. A great malt character in the nose.
T: Like the nose, this has a wonderful malt character that is very well balanced. Toasted malt, baked bread, light smoke, and the woody/oak flavor. Chocolate, vanilla, and light caramel malt. A total malt bomb that is incredible.
M/D: A medium body with ultra fine carbonation, which I could have guest from the look. So smooth. This is like silk. I can not tell the alcohol here at all. The incredible malt balances makes this a treat to drink.

Yep, I am a fan. I might like this better than Real Heavy for the best regularly made Texas Wee Heavy. Nothing is over the top, and everything is in balance. Which is perfect for the classic Wee Heavy style. I am very impressed by this. Highly recommended.

Serving type: growler
