$8.79 Four Pack, Green’s Beverage, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA.
Dark brown, almost black pour with a large creamy head that receded very quickly. There was almost zero lacing with this beer.
The aroma I get is all chocolate fruit cake – like a Christmas cake! There is a smashing, fully rounded mouthfeel to this, with flavors of raisins and sultanas coming through strong. Lovely, warm malts round the beer.
This is an exceptionally smooth beer with no harsh edges which make it very drinkable. Add the nice ABV level and you’ve got a first class beer. In fact the alcohol seems to be almost completely shielded by the full and satisfying nature of this beer.
