What the brewers say

“Primus features a subtle warming alcohol character with notes of chocolate, caramel, and toffee in concert with flavors and aromas of clove, banana, and vanilla.”

What our panel thought

“Rich toffee, coffee, raisin notes with a peppery spiciness. Chewy, toasted malt with a lingering nutty quality. Great combination of spiciness, carbonation, and alcoholic heat on the finish. Rich, creamy, and complex without being cloying. Some might find the clove character a bit much, but it is certainly in the wheelhouse of the style.”

What our editors thought

“Caramel apple, sandalwood, and a touch of musk and clove on the nose. The sip is toffee, bittersweet apple, almond butter, and wormwood baked into the most savory loaf of banana nut bread you’ve ever tasted. Finishes bright with a palate-cleansing sensation that belies its murky brown body. A mind-bending beer that defies any visual expectations ascribed to it.”
