Bottle. Pours darkest brown. Nose/taste of fig, raisin, candi sugar, dark fruits and sweet malt. Very sweet finish with tons of mashed up figs and raisins. Medium body. brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 16, 2012
The pour is dark amber in color with an off-white head. Toasted malt with a surprising hoppiness, mostly citrus peel. There’s a nice sweetness to the nose and quite a bit of white grape, which I seem to get in most alts. Some caramel and toffee maltiness, maybe a bit of chocolate, too. The flavor is a bit boozy, unfortunately. Some citrus hop flavor, a lot of toasted malt, white grape, and toffee sweetness are also present. The booze really lasts throughout the entire sip. djd07 (16289) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2012
