Served at Novare Res is Portland Maine. 8oz pour into a .25cl Allagash chalice.

Appearance- Dark cloudy amber color with minimal head. Moderate lacing around the top of the glass.

Smell- Sweet malts with dark stone fruit flavors. Mild hops. Alcohol.

Taste- Sweet fruity malts. Mild hops to balance out the sweetness. Very "winey" in the fruity flavors. Boozey, but not excessively.

Mouthfeel- Thick, but not overly sticky. Viscous with nice carbonation to balance.

Overall- Apparently it's the Saison Noel left to freeze eisbock style. Very unique and tasty and I hope to see it around again.
