I had this eber on tap at "Bob's Bar" in Clintonville last night with my good buddy Shane.
This beer was very interesting to me. It poured a rich amber/brown color, and gave off a heavy, sweet smell. There was virtually no head on this beer at all.
My initial taste pretty much hit me hard. This is definately not a weak beer in taste! The malts are very pronounced, combined with cinnaman, honey and clove. The flavors are very sharp...if that makes since, and finishes with a bite. I really didn't care for the first sip, but this beer seemed to get better and better. Mouthfeel was thick and sticky.
A really nice, obscure christmas ale, and at $3 a pint at Bob's, I'll be enjoying this one again.
Serving type: on-tap
