I am enjoying another of Morticai's beers. This one is marked "2 year and 1 year mixed ferment aged in oak".
It poured with little to no head, has a medium copper or dark gold color and is very clear. Almost no legs or foam.
Aroma is honey and herbal, like an Indian spice, similar to coriander, but hard to pinpoint.
Oak is very apparent in the initial sip, then it kind of reminds me of the flavor of cream soda - not so much the sweetness as much as a honey/birch flavor. It has a light sour finish, more lactic than acetic, not puckering, but leaving a little slickness in the finish.
More CO2 would definitely change this beer for the better - I think he transferred this from a keg and may have lost some carbonation in the process.
As I said, I am enjoying this beer and I think it would be fantastic with more CO2.
yeah the bottling from the keg is killing me.
