This beer (although only half-way gone at the time being) baffles me. It starts out tasting like a dark winter ale, but ends with a light finish that leaves me forgetting the initial flavor. So far, I’m diggin’ it . . . I get to enjoy the taste of a darker beer but without the heavy feeling of guilt at the end of each swallow. Raisins? Definitely. But only when I smell it. Dark fruit and rum? Not sure. Guess I have a lot to learn about developing my beer palette.
