Finally trying this beer. Liquid caramel colored wit no carbonation and resembling a tawny port.
Caramel, toffee, oak, hints of bourbon and brandy, dried figs and plums, dates, nutty characters, alcohol hotness in the nostrils. Sweet nectar inducing aromas. Very nice.
Tastes like it smells but with much more honey and it is quite hot. Very much like a good 50yr or older tawny port. Such big caramel and toffee flavors, good oak and bourbon really keeps things in perspective. Hugely complex. Light cocoa nib flavors, herbal tea, fig, date, quince paste. Thick, sticky and creamy a great beer but just way to expensive.
