Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Bottled. Poured a deep, coppery brown with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up deep, rich caramelization with darker fruits and chocolate.. very intriguing and enjoyable. The flavor had dark fruits and caramel again at the core with sharper alcohol notes and a solid dose of herbal bitterness.. sweet, toasty finish showed some stale oxidation notes. Light-medium bodied and too sharp at times. Not bad at all.
