4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Showed up at the table a murky rust color with a smallish antique white head. The spicy aroma featured lots of juicy grapefruits, citrus rinds, caramel, a big biscuity maltiness, and some freshly baked rye bread. Went down full-bodied, rich, smooth, and just a tad sticky. Upfront taste-wise was lots of caramel and a rich, freshly baked rye breadiness. There was a big biscuity middle. The bitter finish featured lots of citrus rinds and grapefruits. There was a lingering dryness. Plenty of warming alcohol was present throughout and only added to the depth of this rich brew. Excellent!
