11.2 ounces bottle Taste the fruits and the barley. Some plum and raisin notes also. You can smell and taste the alcohol. Deep prune in color.Touch of raisin in the taste also. Smooth on palate and this is interesting beer that has many complex favors JStax (6356) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2016
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a tulip glass. The beer is a dark ruby with lots of sediment floaties throughout. Beige head of foam with moderate retention. The beer smells a lot like a spiced beer with brettanomyces and a belgian yeast strain working together. I get sweet cinnamon, cardamom, light smoke, licorice, clove, candi sugar, and molasses. Sweet and spicy taste. Bigger body and a chewy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. Overall, decent. I would be happy to enjoy this beer again someday.
