Excitement levels rise to the max here… just buy the visuals on this bottle you know that you’re in store for something really special. As Espen Westum- whom together with wife and myself are to withness this beauty tonight, are all equally exited about this piece of delish. Being acquainted with several of their previous brews, I know this is something good.
First off: Nose is sooo distinct of cinnamon. Ridiculously distinct, straight forward superlicious! Aromatic spices, sweet chocolate vibes… it’s all in here baby. The holy diver of 2019 after that marsmallow handjee of theirs! Can wait no longer…
Christmas pastry doesn’t cover it, although it comes close. It is such clear cinnamon taste that you feel that you’re in the middle of the bakery, hints coffee, broken by traces of ginger and chocolate. Just pure and simple as only these guys at 3 Floyds can stout. Fucking masters. Dumbstruck I am! And grateful.
Incredible balance is needless to say, but even more strange is the fact that carbonation is intact in such a powerful beer. It’s just… perfect. Nothing is to be picked on. Everlasting taste & aftertaste. Live & love in a bottle is what this is.
