Chilled 22oz bomber pours a dark mahogany with a moderate tan head (weak pour?). Some suspended particulate matter. Second pour produces a beter constructed head and more copius particulates.
Smells of sugar and malt with piney hops, earth and grain.
Flavors of carbonation, alcohol, grain, malt and bitter hops; anise.
Don't know what to make of this one, am I too distracted? Maybe I need some corned beer...uh, beef, and sauerkraut!!! I can definitely taste the rye, I won't deny it.
Feels like a deli in my mouth...mmm. Could be the official beer of the Reuben.
I would enjoy this with a meal. I have this idea in my head that it needs to be a meal involving corned beer, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese...am I getting through?
