muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 500 ml bottle from Winooski Beverage in Winooski, VT (May 2008) sampled at cellar temperature from a Samuel Smiths pint glass. A rugged, persistent off-white big-bubbled head crowns this translucent dark bronze/maple beauty, leaving thick lacing as it quite slowly disappears....interesting and strange aroma of caramel, vanilla, herbal/piney notes and some odd sweaty characteristics, overall more odd than anything, not unpleasant but not necessarily inviting either....smooth, full and rich body, nice malt extraction, a bit of smokiness and graininess towards the finish, tastes just a bit over the hill which wouldn’t be surprising really, hops are quite muted and dry, some piney/resinous notes show up with a bit of warmth....carbonation rather low and natural. Solid; I wish I could find an ESB or ESA this good available where I am for less than the $6 this sucker cost.
