Gratitude

2009 Blue Wax – thanks go out to PittBeerGirl for the chance to try this.

750 mL, paper-wrapped affair. A hazy, orange copper color body with better head and lace that I was expecting for a beer of its size.

Aroma and initial tastes are excruciatingly sweet, and it’s a sweetness that lacks the charm of an English Barleywine and comes charging at you with clumsiness.

The beer is a convoluted and confusing array of alcohol, sugar, malt and tastes that seem to be esters in their profile but are difficult to pin down. I like sweet beers but for me, this is a unwieldy, aggressive, awkward and stumbling beer that lacks refinement.
