2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (brewed at Two Roads in Stratford, not Dog in Baltimore).
Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly to fully diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (basement/concrete), with strong notes grains of paradise, coriander, sage, other notes of cotton candy, alcohol, sugar.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Overspiced, unfortunately...some nice elements in there, but the sage/pepper onslaught makes it into just a novelty beer. Sweeter and more boozy than I expected from the 6.6% ABV...drinkable, but not all that enjoyable.
