This dangerously drinkable garnet beauty is a hop lover’s delight. The intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content are perfectly balanced for a caramel candy-like malt finish. This is a serious beer for serious beer afficionados and it only gets better with age. Cellarable for 3 years.

Quick3Beers (527) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Pours a clear reddish brown from a bottle. Aroma of cherry cordial, some oak and caramel. Pretty boozy. Bitter, astringent, and also slightly sweet in the mouth. Again, boozy, burns a little going down. A little much for me.
