Color is a hazy dark yellow with a light orangy gold tone to it. Recieved a big bubbly off-white head of foam that faded pretty quickly leaving amazing stitching of lace all over the glass. Smell is much that of wine, chardonnay maybe, with lots of white grapes, a bit musty in a earthy undertone and just lots of fruity sweetness and a touch of honey. Taste is mild sweetness of grapes, wine-like in character, good fruity sweet tartness that grabs nicely and is easy to handle with a nice "touch " of honey and some alcohol pops out in the finish. Feel is pretty full, a bit dull of sweet tartness and carbonation is leveled out some.
Great, great stuff, and the 9% really hits your head so drink slowly and enjoy.
Trust the Midas Touch. Pours a lighter amber color with good clarity. The head was ok with tight white bubbles. It quickly dissipates to the edge of the glass but never really goes away. The smell has a noticeable malty aroma. Some caramel but mostly malty center. Some phenols and a tad yeasty notes but a much lighter presence.
The taste has a big malt presence. A good dexterous taste with a bready flavor to it. Caramel flavors and a touch of toasty notes are picked up on the background. Very little to not hop taste with a somewhat sugary taste, similar to juice in a way. Some phenolic tastes but is heightened with no bitterness.
The body is big and makes this beer unique. Almost like a dopplebock without the yeasty notes. I think this is as good as an example of a malt bomb as there is.
