nimbleprop (7763) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 22, 2016
32oz growler from Moms in Arlington, pours a mostly clear amber with some soapy, sticky white head. Nose is interesting, malt, something starchy like a soy bean, some dried leaves, some faint oak, yeast, some foreign booze - like Armagnac or something. Flavor is similarly unique, it really doesnt fit any style. Redolent of honeycomb, some golden raisin, lightly woody but lightly herbal too, a touch medicinal maybe, some butterscotch, light spice, light vanilla. Full bodied, oily, lasting finish. Very interesting.

4oz draft pour at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a very clear, golden orange color with a small, very lightly off-white head. Aroma was booze, lots of sweetness in there - totally clean malt character - alcohol burning.

Ahh yes, the rate and elusive English Strong Ale style. Crystal clear golden color, see pic please. Aroma of boozy herbs. Taste is powerful boozy. Holy cow. Definitely the best split pea beer Ive had in my entire life.
