$2.49 Ziggy’s, Chattanooga, TN, USA, single 11.2 fl oz bottle.
Poured into the Trois Pistoles chalice, we get an amber pour with some soapy like head and very little lacing.
Aroma is excellent with a lot of sherry and rum like aromas. This is both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because it smells delicious, but bad since it creates a mental picture of the taste that is richer, thicker and more complex than the mouthfeel, and ultimately the taste, delivers.
Taste is alcoholic liquor, that fades quickly in the rather thin mouthfeel to leave a medicinal or perhaps a vermouth type aftertaste. The finish is quite long, and it definitely levaves that herbal vermouth type taste – for those that remember a Cinzanno Bianco!
Unique taste, refreshing and delicious. If this had a better mouthfeel we would have a stunning beer, as it is it is still a very, very nice beer.
