ineedbeer (1927) - Oakland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Poured from a 750 ml bottle with a 12/14/2010 bottle date. Aroma is unique with a lot of malt character but also some spice, citrus and fruit notes. Lots of caramel, toffee toasted bread and nuts. Some moderate raisin notes with hints of cherry and stone fruit. Some light citrus notes. Hints of cinnamon with some light chocolate notes. A bit of a gusher. Pours a somewhat clear, burnt amber brown with a large, moderately thick, dark tan head that slowly recedes to a thin film that lingers on the edges. No lacing and small legs. Flavor is moderately acidic with a moderate malt note. Toasted bread, nuts and dark caramel dominate. Light chocolate notes with some medium light citrus. Light raisin, fig and cherry notes. Moderately strong phenolics with cinnamon, but also some herbal spicy notes and a bit of vegetable note. Medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation. Moderate astringency and low but present alcohol warmth. Overall, an alright beer. A nice aroma, but the flavor does not match up. A bit astringent as well. Age definitely hurt this flavor, but Im not sure it was a great combo to begin with.
