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


The Bruery Saule

Aroma: “Spiced apple cider with caramel sauce (and a shot of whiskey). There’s a lot of barrel character up front, and the malt is behind that with caramel and toffee. Some raisin, moderate plum, light pear, a touch of cherry and molasses.”

Flavor: “Very, very rich. Malt and whiskey, and barrel characters with oak and moderate fruitiness of cherries, lemons, dates, and raisins. Big dark chocolate flavors complemented by moderate molasses and a light malt sweetness. The alcohol is omnipresent and amplifies every other element of this rich and luxurious beer.”

Overall: “Decadent—a perfect beer for sharing. This is a big complicated caramel, molasses, dark chocolate, malty goodness of a beer, and I’m a sucker for big and complicated beers.”
