Best Quote During Tasting
I'm speechless. They put all that shit in a beer and pulled it off.
|Aroma - This one smells like sweet booze, slight tartness and surprisingly, no real pepper aromas. You can also get caramel notes that could from the malts or the barrel (or both). Some peach and pit fruit is there as well.|
|Appearance - This complex beer pours a light amber and has a firm, white cap of foam.|
|Flavor - It's tart, it's citrus (lemon), its spicy, it's salty, it's rum, it's oak, it's everything. The pepper is very subtle and it's incredibly drinkable. The balance is surprising based on what's included.|
|Mouthfeel - Despite the low ABV, the body is full and the carbonation is medium. It felt like a higher ABV brew.|
|Overall Impression - Guys. Guys. I really can't explain how crazy this beer was. It's like they threw everything they could at this beer and the insane experiment actually worked out. Now I'm not saying I'd choose this for a BBQ shindig but I definitely would drink a full pint at a bar and enjoy the hell out of it. I actually had a flight of beers at Strangeways when I visited and really enjoyed all of them. If you're out in Richmond, hit them up.|
