4/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into tulip at 53 degrees F

A: Murky and tawny colored body. Prper head that slowly settles leaving a nice lace ring.
S: Spicy ginger with corn husks and yeast.
T: Rough roots, earth, hay, less ginger than in nose on first taste. There are a lot of intangibles, with bark, dried rinds supporting a sweet tang.
M: A burly and large texture, not smooth on the micro level but overall gives a satisfying grip.
D: I can see why not everyone would like this but to me it is a gem. I find its challenges, if well met, are worthwhile. Like a young art student she will break your heart and keep you coming back for more. You may not marry her but you will sleep with her again given the right circumstances.

3.76/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

(bottle code RG.13.12 - poured into a tall Unibroue tulip)

A: tall, gooey-spongy foam to start... somewhat cloudy, dark caramel color - looks like liquified caramel in the process of cooling off dry...

S: browned, dry caramel overtone... old, candied ginger

T: heavy malt foundation, malty ginger beer, herbal bitterness in the finish... powdered ginger and grain-husky bitterness lingers... tiny hint of spicy alcohol

M: fatty-round... thinnish, chewy-gooey viscosity... booze enhances the notably dry finish

O: caramel-y malt and powdered ginger are core to the taste here... it appears that it could be a goopy mess, however, the flavors seem to have decent balance and it thankfully ends up surprisingly dry... if you dig malt and ginger anything, this is a good one
