3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle. Pours brown with some sediment and a durable, tan head. Aroma is crayon-ish and grape with some burnt caramel. Flavor is some chocolate with dried fruits and even more fresh vinous grape. This is as close to a wine as any beer I’ve tasted. I’m sure this beer would be fantastic in 10 years and after just one, although not boozy tasting, I’m getting a buzz from just a few sips.

The aroma is sweet and yeasty with some chocolate. The appearance is brown with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma with plenty of alcohol for a 9%. The palate is thin. Overall it’s pretty good but not that impressive.

Gives a real spicy punch. A true peppery overtones that makes this a great winter warmer. Toffee and caramel like. Enjoy
