750ml corked and caged. God I love saying that.
Nice reddish translucent brown with a thin head that builds around the edges of the glass from a thousand tiny bubble trails. The smell is maple syrup and soft wood. Notes of fruit and promises to come. The taste is cherries and wood, then a peppery finish and a crisp, granny smith apple aftertaste. The afertaste melds into a dusky malt that never gets too dry. Outstanding. Nice tingly carbonation up front, a soft buttery feel and then the crisp finish that is as much feel as taste. Very drinkable, hiding its alcohol content well. Not a session beer but we knew that when the style has "strong" in the name, didn't we? A bit warm. An excellent beer and a new addition to my rotation for sure.
