Lukaduke (2520) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 30, 2014
Pours a rich amber to mahogany color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of rich layers of creme brulee, raisin, salt water taffy, roasted peanuts. A viscous body that coats your mouth with some underlying booze, hints of bitterness never quite make it out of the round sweetness but teases the back of the palate. Solid.

330 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with light head. Aromas of brown sugar, malt extract, and dark fruit. Flavors are rich and same with an additional Christmas cake spiciness. I’ll take the front room over the back.
