t Smisje Calva Reserva

11.2oz stubbie bottle that is different from the picture in the BA database. $4.29 for the bottle.
It lists the ABV as 11.0% which leads me to believe that it *could* possibly be the Grande Reserva version, but there is NO mention of this on the label, so I’m runnign with the Reserva.
Dark rust colored pour that is still in the glass – no head or lace to speak of. Consistet with the ABV.
Nose has pleny of sweet alcohol. Replicated up front with sweet alcohol, but the finish s dry and bitter. A certain mustiness to the beer that is not especially attractive. Warmth lingers in the aftertaste. Tastes “old”, and not in a good way. Some rum notes, with dark sugar. Reminds me of a Jamaican drink. A little light in the mouth.
This didn’t do a great deal for me.
