Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Tax Holiday is a creamy, full-bodied, reddish-amber Christmas ale. Chocolate rye creates a rich and spicy malt profile, while Hunter's Farm Buckwheat Honey provides deep color, sparkling dryness and subtle notes of molasses. A blend of Pacific Gem and Saaz hops contribute warm but balanced fruit and oak flavors on the back of the palate. Ringing in at 10.2% ABV, Tax Holiday will be the perfect beer to warm up with on a cold winter's night

22oz 2017 vintage bottle poured into a snifter at just above fridge temp 10.0% ABV (per label). The beer pours medium brown in color with quickly fading khaki head. The head recedes to a thin ring and paper thin island with some lacing. The aroma is faint with sweetness and Belgian yeast. The taste starts with rich dark dried fruit, then chocolate, then spice from the rye and yeast. You catch a little of the honey in the finish. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, well carbonated and suitably dry in the finish. No real sign of the 10% in aroma or taste.
Overall, excellent. This is a beer that's hard to review because I enjoy each sip so much, I forget what I'm supposed to be looking for. Recommended.
