degbert (1709) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle. Pours an almost opaque brown-orange-gold with a high, creamy, mixed-grain cinnamon-brown head. Nose is orange, dried fruit, tawny port, wheat bread, yeast, turbinado sugar, maple, and molasses. Sweet up front with a strong tea bitterness, then with a big boozy streak; dark rum laced with hops bitterness. Lots of roasty flavor on the back of the palate. Warm spicy citrus notes in the nose as I drink. Finish is long, boozy, aromatic, and warm. Complex. Quite good.
