(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
