Member Ratings and Notes

The nose is hoppy and very beer like, like nosing a stout with lots of rich malt character. The palate is lighter than I would have expected, with hops and spice. The spice on the stout is more akin to baking spices like clove and ginger, similar to some of the notes in a rye whiskey. Toward the end of the palate it has sweet vanilla notes which trail off in to the finish.
