From the bottle it has a nice, sweet fragrance that implies the taste will be the same. This one has a "thick" and filling volume that would be a good pair with a grilled or roasted game meat. I think this brew should be served very cold due to a strong after-taste that would otherwise overpower the culinary experience.
As far as drinking it for the sake of drinking plan to down two or three before the taste becomes palatable.
