Thanks to BigLove for this as part of BCG BIF.
Wow! Incredibly surprised and delighted by this. I was expecting a fairly bland beer from what I usually consider to be a pedestrian brewery, but instead I got a full-on taste assault, and delicious experience.
Deep garnet pour, decent head and retention and some nice lacing too. Put it all together, and it’s a really nice looker.
Sugary, malt molasses and burnt caramel are present in the nose and this is almost exactly replicated in the taste. The aftertaste is delicious, with a warming sweet alcohol. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth.
I was amazed at the richness and taste of this beer. A massive (and pleasant) surprise.
