Year of New Beer: Plaid Habit, Boulevard Brewing (Kansas City, MO)
Written By: Dion on 12/03/2018
Excellent nose. Dark fruit, caramel, brown sugar, and a hefty dose of whisky. The tongue finds the dark fruits narrowing down to cherry and plum, with layers of burnt sugars, dessert breads, and spicy oak. Earthy with nuts, leather, and charred malts. If you don't like a hefty, intense alcohol note, you'd best look elsewhere, because it doesn't really have the body to carry the ABV with finesse. It's brash, but I like it.
