Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2005
This pours a clear, rich brown body with a slight reddish highlighting and a healthy tan head. The aroma is caramel malt filled with alcohol and sweet spices. Light bodied but bubbly in the mouth, it has a sweet malty taste with dark dried fruits, candy sugar, some hot spices, and a definite alcoholic bite. It’s got a warm, sticky, bittersweet finish and an alcohol afterburn. Not bad.
