Begin At the Beginning (Aroma)
Chocolate, dark, kind of dry.
And Go On (Appearance)
Light brown & orange, like a lightweight oil or a dark tea. Luminescent red in direct sunlight. Thin ivory head.
Till You Come to the End (Taste)
Maple. Coats the tongue. Chocolaty, creamy orange. Some warming alcohol like a brandy. Heavy like soaked wood, slight coffee. Sugary, funky caramel. Malty. Spiritous. Dessert beer, but not too sugary and overpowering. A woody, yummy bourbony, beery thing of beer. Tingly carbonation.
Then Stop (Conclusions)
I enjoyed it. Viciously. The bourbon character is well done. Plus, the beer pairs well with a salad. Really. Bacon and pork and cranberry. While watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
I’d drink it again when the opportunity arises.
