|Stone growler as displayed|
in my kitchen
Took home a growler of this 9.4% Belgian ale. Dirty white head is a tough pour and almost evaporates. Draft on Saturday fell less quickly, but dissipated just the same. Fusel alcohols apparent in the nose with a spicy hotness along with strong caramel, toffee and burnt malt. Swirl the beer and full legs appear along the edge of the glass and betray the high alcohol. Sticky sweet, full mouthfeel with caramel malt and a yeast and alcohol spiciness. This beer warms up nicely and really opens up, so take some time and enjoy. Otherwise, the flavors are muted and the full potential will be missed.
