22 oz brown bomber with a vintage date of 2005 and a blurb about French oak wine barrels on the label.
A- Thick off white froth not unlike one that would be on a fresh brewed cappuccino. The superb head hangs above a slightly hazed reddish amber colored brew ... great retention the head shows as well.
S- Suggestions of figs, light caramel, granny smith apples, vinous tartness, clean oak and toasted Portuguese sweet bread.
T&M- Impeccably smooth and creamy within the full body. Mild fig like sweetness rolls into a bigger layer of toasted and caramel malt ... this all folds into a warming alcohol and more toasted grain. Sweet all around but the hops and oak character keep this beer in harmony.
D- Oh Baby! Sip this one, I could certainly sip this one all night long. This is one of the "New American" craft beers, not a tread but more of what American taste is about. It paired great with some baked Brie cheese stuffed with raspberries.
