hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours thick, murky and black with a small, beige head. The aroma is a melded assortment of fudge, dried plum, vanilla and pouch tobacco. Full-bodied with a thick and silky-smooth mouthfeel. Modest carbonation. The flavor is a delicious swirl of burnt caramel, soy sauce, dried plum, vanilla and pouch tobacco. Carbonic, bittersweet, soy-salty finish. Thanks to ctipping for supplying this world-class beer!
Note: I’ve picked up saltiness in two beers tonight. Neither was a gose or an oyster stout. My taste buds may be tainted.
