bluejacket74 (1945) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2017
11.2 ounce bottle, best before 26 NOV 2017 stamped on the back label. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a hazy reddish/brown color with about an inch and a half tan head that stuck around for a bit. Theres a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like stone fruit, sweet spices, herbs and earthiness. It tastes like stone and dark fruit, caramel, herbs, earthiness, sweet spices, licorice and molasses. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its slick and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this brew, glad I tried this one! $3.99 a bottle.
