hopscotch (10080) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Bottle... RBWG 2015This beer rocks!… Pours clear and deeply amber with a small, nicely tanned head. The aroma is a fantastic stream of raw coconut, rye whiskey, gooey caramel, dried and sweetened stone fruits, and dried plum. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and sufficient carbonation. The decadent flavor offers gooey, buttery, sweet caramel well-integrated with a generous measure of unobtrusive rye whiskey. Warming, comforting, nourishing finish. Yet another world-class treatment of a world-class beer from Alesmith via stawn!.

Bottle shared at RBWG 2015! Pours a hazy golden brown with thin off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big sweet vanilla and toffee wroth just a hint of spicy wood back end. Taste follows, sweet but not overly so, booze is well hidden, damn nice, thanks for the share!
