Life & Limb

$9.99 for the 24 oz bottle a la SN Harvest brews.
Pour is a dark, chestnut body with some frothy lace sitting on the surface. Little lace, but as expected for the ABV.
Surprisingly smooth drinking given the alcoholic content. The beer is very sweet (obviously as a function of the syrup), but also maintains a decent balance of flavors without losing the plot. Alcohol is very well hidden until the back end when it kicks in slightly. Hop profile is lowish
Definitely a light, woody note and some well worn leather in there too. The beer is actually more rounded than I expected and comes together in quite a gentle way considering the complicated array of ingredients. A little medicinal and organic, and a pronounced leafy or earthy tone in there as well. Hay?
I was surprised at how accessible this was as I was expecting an assault on the senses that would be too aggressive. Having said that I don’t know that the price, ABV or type of beer that this is will lend itself to anything other than the very occasional tipple.
Better than expected, but still just too much all in one glass for me.
