  • This has bottled was aged for a year.

    Pours clear with an inch of white foam. Frothing up has it recedes at an average rate, there isn't much lacing left.

    Aroma is mostly of sweet malt. Not overly sweet but caramelized malts are about all I can find. Maybe a hint of spicy hops. Dark fruits are there too but only lightly.

    Taste is sweet with dark plum sugar in the middle. Peat starts slowly in the middle and builds subtly to a non-overwhelming level. Peat lingers with caramel malt for a while along with slightly spiced hops.

    Full body with a medium carbonation. Dries the palate a bit a leaves the lips a bit sticky.

    Unbelievably I actually dig the pet in the beer as it takes some of the attention and spotlight of the sweetness. Drinkable in spite of the higher ABV and the amount of sweetness. Solid. Enjoy!
