Year of New Beer: Aún Más A Jesús (Brandy Barrel Aged), Evil Twin Brewing (NY)

Written By: Dion on 05/18/2017

Chocolate and dark fruits hit the nose first, followed quickly by healthy doses of charred wood and spice. Undercurrents of burnt sugar and red wine arrive with warmth. Silky smooth on the tongue as espresso greets the woody note, softened by hints of molasses and vanilla. A slightly spicy brandy remains persistent but well-integrated through the glass. Complex but not the least bit heavy, this doesn't seem to drink anywhere near its listed 12% ABV. Very nice.
