4.5/5 rDev +13.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Had on tap at the Taphouse on Queensway in Hampton, VA.
Appearance: Served in a chalice, it is a dark amber brown color, with 1 finger tan head, leaves considerable lacing
Smell: Very fruity, reminds me most of sweet grapes and cherries, with some good darker malts
Taste: Very sweet, I would almost consider it a desert beer. It is mostly sweet grapes and cherries, with a good helping of Belgian yeast funk. Very complex and enjoyable.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, very smooth texture
Overall: This was awesome. Had no idea this was even available on tap. Not cheap, but worth it. Will definitely look for in bottles.
Serving type: on-tap
