In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


River North Brewery Father Time

"Raisiny, dried apple and other dried fruit, toasted wood. Deep aromas of dark fruits like plum and raisins. Beautiful ruby highlights in the color. Fabulous deep caramel complexity accompanied by a boozy sidekick. Sweet dark bread malt plays nicely with the dark fruits and tends toward a decedent dessert flavor. Real coziness of flavor here. Soft, caramellized gooiness to sink into. Sticky richness, Maillard heaven, deep winter pleasantries. Baking spices come through the finish with a touch of alcohol warmth that helps balance the sweetness."
