CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 21, 2010
On tap at Cambrinus on 9/3/09: Pours a transparent ruby mahogany with a well-lacing froth of light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and raisins with some doughy yeasty complexity and light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and malty sweetness with a finely dissolved carbonation and hints of peppery clove and dark caramel and bready complexity before a slightly drier full finish. Very well-balanced and enjoyable.
