Best Cuvee I have ever had! Nearly perfect malt and hop flavor. I really enjoyed this one. Had a nice carbonation to it to, just went down super smooth. Almost no aftertaste, just a pleasant sweet flavor left on the pallate. Too bad this wasnt in bottles when I was there!

Pours a medium to dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is of oak with a roasted malt backbone and sweet malts. The taste is very smooth and hides the alcohol very well, the taste is of oak notes, with sweet malts, and roasted malts. A caramel malt is present for the sweet malts. The mouthfeel is very good, a moderate carbonation and the slick oily taste that comes with some beers of this style is not there, very good mouthfeel. The drinkability is very high, everything is good, good smell, good taste and good mouthfeel. You could drink a lot of these because of the great job hiding the alcohol.
