arminjewell (9426) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Pour out of bottle is dark brownish almost black with some red slightly off white/tan head. Aroma brings notes of caramel, nuts, biscuit and toast, hints of earth and slight grass as well. Taste is a bit watery, but notes of caramel, some slight hints of biscuit, touch of vanilla and some slight dark fruit, finishing fairly sweet, but slightly dry in there. Some carb pushes it through the palate fairly well, a bit thin. Tasty for 4.3% for sure.
