'There are women who inspire you with the desire to conquer them and to take your pleasure of them; but this one fills you only with the desire to die slowly beneath her gaze."
from "The Desire to Paint"
Pours red with burnt orange hues. Froth is sheet-like with tiny bubbles. Funk, pepper, perfumy florals, vanilla cake and a back splash of hops to the nose. Somewhat grainy up front and dry. A mixture of light and dark fruits interplay fluidly with some spice, pepper, hibiscus and a slight barnyardy essence. Aftertaste is a little bitter with some phenols involved. Grows slightly tart after a while. Light to medium bodied and goes down easy. The added ingredients (rose petals/hibiscus) work quite well in this interesting take on one of my favorite styles. Add in the top-notch artwork as tribute to one of my most revered poets, and I could die slowly beneath the gaze of this brew all day long.
