Taste Notes

2011 Notes - Tasted out of the hydrometer tube upon kegging (F.G.=1.009), and this beer might be one of the best beers to ever come out of The Smokestack Lightning Brewery. Wonderful Coriander and pepper in the nose. The hops are right there as well. The initial flavor is sweet but the beer finished relatively dry with a real nice Belgiany finish. A-10 A-3 F-17 M-5 O-9 Total Score=44
