Lots of character and a hint of booze induced warmth. Smooth, mellow and very well balanced. The caramel/honey sweetness really lingers too. The booze is well hidden and palatable. Clean but with a nice lingering buttery texture. Slick and a bit creamy taste in the finish. A definite buttery character in the flavor and the texture makes this brew go well with lobster.
