auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 28, 2008
On tap at the Escanaba brewpub. Pours a pretty garnet, fringed in sienna and rimmed with off white. Faint nose of alcohol and fruitcake. Flavor is a rich blend of oak tannins, bourbon, chewy bread and some weird bitterness (reduced hop form?). Good depth. Nice body. Chewy. Bready, but I can’t get over this weird, heavily metallic bitterness. Harsh. Alcohol is a little high, but fine for the style. Some mature fruits and aged alcohols. As nice as some of the background fruits, oak aging and body are, this bitterness kills it. Not well finished.
