Have a feeling that the beer was a little old when i got it, and not refrigerated, but i wanted to try it so here we are.
Poured from a bomber into my chalice. Deep clear red, brown-red. Strong head and nice lacing.
Smell was raisins, hops, and alcohol, in that order. Not great but maybe that's its age showing through.
Taste was hoppy and sweet, with a hint of rye and little backbone of malt. Quite tasty.
Felt really good in the mouth, nice and creamy.
Would love to try it on tap, as i feel like i missed out, but this is a great beer nonetheless.
