3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wine and Cheese STL. Thanks for forwarding it on to me, jcnielsen! Pours a hazy reddish brown appearance with a tiny head that doesn’t stick around long. Really thick caramel, rich malty, big dark fruity, fairly herbal, somewhat boozy nose. Kind of hard to stomach while being somewhat tasty. The flavor and booze are in your face from first taste and just linger and burn. Lots of fruity notes and a massive amount of brown sugar and toasted malts in the taste. Not all that bad but it’s a bit tough to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a crazy beer. Smells like nothing I’ve ever had before. Smells like rum or wine mixed with beer and some black currant. Has almost no carbonation. Tastes fruity, sour, suddy - a whole bunch of different taste. Pours thick like syrup, a red colour. Very viscous. Tap at the Blue Monk.
