This beer was a nice way to end a pleasant evening!
Had it on tap at a local tavern. Rich dark reddish brown color with thin head but good lacing. Dark cherry smell and taste. Flavors of dark raisins, plums and a hint of cola. Not very boozy, in fact it was pleasantly light on the palate.
Pours an effervescent & not clear chestnut with a sliver of sand colored head. Viscious, minimal lacing & head retention
S: Figs, limes, booze. Figs & raisins once warm, plenty of tequla boozeyness, plus leafy hops as this warms, plenty of barrel dryness as well
T: Follows the nose, much oaky cask, a little dark cherry & raisin up front. Pear brandy, leafy hopes, limes & oaky dryness as this warms. Finishes with plenty of Tequila aspects, dry, limey, agave, figs & woodyness
MF: Medium body, restrained carbonation, warming
Great variant on the style, my only beef; the price. Well worth seeking out & then some
The "DNR" is an excellent beer on it's own merit, IMO. These Cask-It series I've been fortunate enough to get to try made me a fan. This one has an odd color that looks like apple butter. Has good carbonation but not much head. Has a rich aroma of sweet molasses, brown sugar and maple syrup. Tastes like dark fruits. Raisins, prunes and dates. It's intriguing and very tasty. No sign of Tequila. Too easy to drink. Somehow I'm reminded of Port wine. It's 12.1% ABV is unnoticeable it is so smooth. Overall it gets a kick ass award it's so fine and goes way above a traditional beer. Poured into a tulip from a 375 ML bottle. Not much information out there on this beer.
