Tasting Notes

"The nose begins with citrusy, zesty hops, along with lemon and pine, all followed by chocolate bundt cake and macerated berries. The palate offers gooey baked brownies, and Christmas fruit cake with nutmeg, cloves and candied orange peel. The finish offers tannic oak and bitter coffee, along with pecan pie, allspice and cacao.
