3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Pours cloudy and burnt-orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. I have a hard time pulling any aroma from this, but finally dig up some dates and figs, and some even-more-restrained notes of fruitcake, smoke and whole-grain bread. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is remarkably well-balanced for the style. I can “sense” or maybe “feel” the alcohol, but can’t really taste it. Also, there are dates, golden raisins and figs with an undertone of maple. Finishes bready and mildly bitter. Interesting brew. Complex. Bottle courtesy of Plovmand!
