Yeah, yeah, I know, Cabin Fever on the fourth day of Summer?!? Well, I am trying to winnow my way through a massive backlog of beer and the older ones are on the verge of becoming V.O.S., so they get priority.

From the bottle: "Hints of rye, roast and raisin join a subtle caramel sweetness before a clean finish. Parirings: roasted meats, dried fruits, gruyere & smoked cheeses."

The drill is becoming a familiar one by now - pop the cap, heavy pour, sit back as the pseudo-cascade takes place, record results thereof. This time, the two-plus fingers of head were a dense, light-brown with good retention. I was reminded of the top of a coffee or mocha ice cream cone. Nose definitely gave off raisin and a smoky roastiness, hence their suggestion for smoked cheeses. Color was mahogany (SRM = > 22, < 27) with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was creamy and the taste was chocolaty with raisins and smoke. It was like a Cadbury Fruit and Nut chocolate bar. Finish was semi-sweet, with the roasted malt offsetting the chocolatiness and the fruitiness. This was one that need not be thought of a a seasonal, but it would have been nice to have paired it with some of their suggestions. Maybe next time ...
