4.05/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Serving Type: 64 oz. Growler from the Picaroon's Brewtique!

A- Pours a reddish brown colour with 1 1/2 of white head that dissipates into a thin film fairly quickly. Lots of lacing on the glass.

S- Sweet and fragrant. Chocolate, black licorice, and a bit of caramel.

T- Lots going on here. Chocolate, licorice, ginseng, caramel and a spicy chili finish. The chili comes in as more of a tingle on the palate than a spicy heat. Wow.

M- Low Carbonation. Good heavy body. Could benefit from a bit more carbonation.

O- What a shame it is that Afterglow is only available a couple weeks out of the year. It's not only a beautiful looking beer, but the aroma and taste is extremely complex. If you didn't get to try it this year, do yourself a favour and get some next Valentines Day. Your palate will thank you!

One batch brewed every year for Valentine's Day.

Poured into Picaroons glass.

A - Pours a dark red, very little head, lacing around the edges.

S - Sweet smelling, bit of chocolate, caramel.

T - Yumm! Complex. Sweet chocolate up front which gives way to subtle ginseng, licorice root, finally giving way to a great spicy aftertaste which lingers forever.

M - Not a lot of carbonation, bit flat on the palette.

O - Overall, a great brew by hometown heroes Picaroons. The smell and especially taste are complex and fun. Only lasts for a week or so a year, so get it when you can!
