Flying Mouflan

22 oz bottle shared with a few at Cypress Pint & Plate, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pretty interesting beer this one, not really my cup of tea but a few extra things to report.
Pour is an impressive, garnet one with nice clarity and a better head than one would expect from the style and the ABV. Even some retention and lace.
Initially the nose gives away little other than the standard hop-forward alcohol that one would anticipate for the style…but….
…as it warms it gets more interesting. I got this incredible, tannin, tea-like aroma and taste that I could NOT shake. It got stronger as the beer went on and even manifested itself in the finish with a puckeringly dry note that one would get from well-stewed tea. Obviously there are the American style hops, the alcohol and all the usual stuff going on in the tastes, but the tea element was very strong for me.
Anyway, because of the tea (and the look) I enjoyed this beer more than I thought I would. Worth a shot for the novelty.
