swhbh (6) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2016 does not count
Pours opaque brown that seems to turn pink-brown toward the top of the glass...with sediment somehow evenly dispersed throughout. Smells strongly of bouron/whiskey/booze, wine and dry fruit. Tastes much the same as it smells, sweet and dry. It has a thick, full mouthfeel with slight carbonation. Excellent and different than any beer I have had.
