3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the brewery. Black with a brown head. First off, this thing tastes like root beer. Since I am not a big fan of root beer, coming up with descriptors was not that easy. I get some mint character in the aroma, as well as some roasted malt. The flavor is a bit more complex. I get some cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger notes, as well as some spearmint, chocolate and roasted malt. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Definitely a different take on one of my favorite beers. Also, this one was very intense. Intense enough that at the brewery they were offering to cut it with 1/2 regular Temptress and 1/2 Root Beer Temptress. I had it straight, but could see why people would want to cut it.
