4.85/5 rDev +14.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Poured into a Duvel tulip; a deep, almost shadowy ruby with an obscene billowing beige head that tops the glass smoothing over to a meringue finish... no dropping before it dissipates within, beautiful lacing and retention... a staggering sight.
Smell: Sweet and sticky hops, slick and oily with a spiced loaf of marble rye in the background.
Mouthfeel: Light and delicate on the palate, sweet and oily with a pine like floral kick.
Taste: Unreal sweet hop bomb... smoothed out with a creamy caramelly malt but hops are king here... sweet and spicy finish that makes me want more.
Drinkability: A beauty I never would have tried had it not been for the best of BA list... tucked away at $5 at Wegmans in Princeton, NJ... I've find my joy when Nugget Nectar is not around...
Serving type: bottle
