An expressive ripeness of nectarine & guava bursting off the tongue in a soft cloud of juice. Hardly any alcohol or bite present.

Fragrant melon aromas transition into flavorful pineapple stone fruit. Nice balance of fruit & bitterness. The 8.5% is well hidden.

No nose to speak of but the flavor is clean light citrus w/ a lemon sweetness & a soft easy bitter finish. Very drinkable.

Strong heavy honeyed stone fruit - boozy sweet bitterness; reminds me of a cocktail (Manhattan, Old Fashioned) initially.

Has a nice secondary tropical undertone to the clean slightly green citra profile. Barely notice any add'l lactose sweetness/creaminess.

Wow, affogato. So much dark roasted coffee on the nose but this is the least astringent coffee stout I've ever had. Sweet coffee ice cream.

First sip is sweet perky tangerine w/ a touch of jackfruit, but it settles on the tongue w/ a bit too much numbing booze.

Citrus oils & pummelo rind - the slightly peppery lemongrass finish is perfect w/ spicy Szechuan food.

Clementine peel aroma - bright citrus, little to no residual sweetness, with a nice semi-dry lemony earthy finish. Could be a touch cleaner.

Boozy heavy peach - a touch hot for me but the flavor & structure are solid. Not too sweet or malty.

I'm a weakling - this is Booze Central. Has some nice honey citrus notes going on but that alcohol just knifes me in the liver.
