3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle enjoyed comfortably in my home, several months after the Mayan Apocalypse... good thing I kept paying the mortgage I guess. The cork nearly blew a hole in the roof, leading to a huge tan head after a ginger pour. Deep brown body. Nose is dark fruits and raison, the spices come through more as it reaches room temp. I enjoyed the base beer and it continues to be the mainstay. The cinnamon is the most noticeable spice, followed by the chilies. Not overly spicey, which I prefer (especially with a good base beer). Overall an enjoyable experience.
