DigitalTaper review:

Belgium yeast nose, alcohol note comes through. I wish I could describe better, but I have a bit of a cold today. Creamy mouthfeel, good body. Getting some date and burnt rasin. Has a pretty long finish, alcohol comes through a bit, but it still very hidden for a 9% beer. More alcohol in the nose than on the palate.

This beer is brewed and bottled in Brooklyn, NY. Many of the Brooklyn bottled beers are contracted out to FX Matt/Saranac. This is a nice change from Brooklyn. I find that most Brooklyn and Saranac beers all have the same aftertast regardless of style. This beer does not fit the status quo. Kudo's to Garrett for doings something different.
