Oh yes, it’s a malty monster alright, a real nice surprise and one of the most interesting beers I think that I’ve ever had.
It’s a spectacularly good looking beer, with a deep, deep, mahogany red color and a small, but perfectly formed head.
It’s one of the best combinations of hop backbone, alcohol and malty sweetness I can recall. This will not appeal to everyone, but it certainly does to me.
Aroma is caramel and the taste follows. The alcoholic finish is magnificent with taste, strength and warmth all included. Wow, good one!
