Sweet caramel, honey, lightly spicy aroma. The aroma really becomes lovely with some warmth. Sweet caramel and honey flavors also show first. Dark fruits, plums, fig newtons add to an initial sweet profile.
The promised grape and wine-like character seems to be missing at first. However, after a few sips, you will not miss that aspect for the rest of the bottle. Acidic, sharp, quite the contrast to the initial sweetness.
That white grape flavor and acidity keep building. Along with a boozy alcy kick, it really gets dominant and assertive. With a little warmth, the grapes drop out a little and the beer smooths out. Some pink and blue cotton candy shows up at the finish and makes everything OK.
Definitely an interesting combination. I enjoyed the beer though definitely recommend at least one other drinking partner for this bomber. Also, let this warm up to the suggested 55°F or even warmer. You will thank me!
