13oz pour on tap at ginger man.
A: pours a deep burgundy with a modest mocha colored head.
S: raisin and caramel, but also saison pepper
T: I keep picking up different notes as I sip. Biscuit, toffee, pepper, grape.
M: medium body with a short dry finish.
O: Really impressed. This beer makes me want to try more from oxbow. You could've fooled me if you had given me a blindfold and told me this was an allagash beer.
