Druid Fluid

I’ve had this a few times before, just now getting around to reviewing it. Purchased as a single 12 oz bottle from Tower on Buford, Atlanta, GA, USA.
I suspect that this bottle is fairly old, but it’s difficult to tell (no dates as far as I can see) – more of that later.
Pour is a dirty, mid-brown, murky body that is not that attractive. Looks like a Dubbel – I don’t like the color or the body appearance at all. Head is very small but still good considering the ABV. No lace to speak of.
Strong liquor, alcohol and sherry notes in the nose. Taste replicates this, especially the sherry. A bit of dry alcohol bitterness in the finish, but the sherry is the winning factor. My guess is that over time (I suspect this bottle is quite old) the sherry notes have developed. I like that. Perhaps some hop profile has declined.
Definite sweetish BW that is taking on more English character rather than American over time. I think it has evolved nicely.
VERY drinkable considering the ABV. Good stuff.
