As others have mentioned, there is no mention of “Special Reserve” on the label here, so I am assuming this is the correct beer. 12 oz bottle, thanks go out to Kevin for the chance to try this beer.
Mid-amber pour with a nice clarity. Head is reserved, but appropriate.
The nose is really rather strong with plenty of sherry liquor notes which get me rather excited.The aroma promises a richness.
The taste don’t really match the virility of the aroma. There is certainly a huge malty, sweet, bread-like presence, and a dash of the sherry note among the alcohol, but not in a manner that the aroma initially suggested.
A nice rounded mouthfeel, tasty malts and a dash of sherry. No peat or smokiness to speak of here, but nonetheless a tasty offering.
