Poured from the bottle into a Dogfish Head Ale glass. Vintage 2013, Best before Jan 11 2014.
A very nice fluffy and tan head, grows three fingers, with a little bit of retention and togetherness. Lots of thin rising carbonation tan in color going up the sides of the glass, through a fairly opaque reddish amber brown body. The carbonation just creeps in slow motion.
Nose is full of rich caramel and thick vanilla. Nice mellow woody oak too, it smells like a sundae. Creamy, thick, dense. Is this dessert coming?
A real nice creamy palate, fills with what is nicely hinted on the nose. Lots of vanilla richness and milky cream. Sweet caramel on the finish, with a hint of bittering hop even. Dry and punchy, with hints of fruit as it warms up on the hop angle of peach and oranges. Spicy malt with an equally playful carbonation that cuts. Palate really jumps around a lot on this one, but it's very fun. More warmth even brings out some banana like esters.
Really fun and great beer from these guys, this one might be my favorite I've had from them so far.
