Silphium (3179) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2008
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe. Classified as an American Strong Ale due to the significant alcohol content (10% ABV). In snifter: deep opaque brown body, thin beige head. Big, buttery oak nose, backed by toast, molasses, and light vinous and burnt raisin notes. Body dominated by big, round oak, marshmallowy and soft like the Barrel Aged Double Cream/Expedition Stout. Brown ale characteristics generally take a back seat to the oak, but I picked up sweet chocolate, fruitskin, and fig or raisin. Warming alcohol bite. Good heft, fair complexity.
