A: Dark auburn color, a lot like other 12’s. Head started out sort of fizzy but has turned into a thick and webby oatmeal colored mass with decent staying power
S: Interesting blend of yellow fruits and dark sugars. First thing that hits me is apricot, peach, lemon peel and cantaloupe. On the other side I find caramel, weak butterscotch and yeasty Belgian sugar.
T: The sweet yellow fruits come through on first sip bringing with it honey drenched apricots, pineapple and marmalade. An awesome blend of cooked down brown sugar, light butterscotch and brittle plays extremely well with the fruity flavors. As the swallow takes place, a bit of metallic aluminum tastes come through but die quickly. Dark and syrupy dried fruits are next on the agenda, tasting like they were rehydrated and pressed to get all their goodness out of them. There’s an underlying hazel and almond nuttiness which is quite appealing as well. Finishes alcoholic, sweet, sugary and rich.
M: Medium body with a full and silky mouthfeel.
D: This beer is young but still really good. It has many years to go before it reaches its potential but its still mighty fine now. Quite balanced and drinkable regardless of the sweetness it yields.
