Today we took a trip to World Market to get a birthday gift for a friend.
Which (naturally) means I get to buy a pint of beer to try!!
Wait – is that a Unibroue or a mustache? It’s both.
It is described on the bottle as, “Bottle Refermented – Dark Ale on Lees Ale Brewed with Spices”. What does that even mean? I don’t have a clue.
I can tell you what I do know:
I like it. It is very dark in color but not so strong as I expected. It has a hint of fruity tang with some veiled spices in there. Possibly some vanilla?
Here’s the odd bit. I liked it more on the first sip than the last. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like I came to DISlike it — but for some weird reason my mouth went from I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!! to … meh.
All in all I would give it a solid 8. Definitely satisfying enough that I wouldn’t want to have more than a small glass.
Plus, what a great name!
