Well today was bottling day of the Dead Ringer…Here is the after math of a 100% full carboy that slipped from my grip onto the patio.
I’m happy to say at least nobody was hurt other than a few cuts on my bare feet Also…no beer was spilled…whew !
Well after that and the clean up I decided I would need to calm down a bit and what better way than to open a coveted bottle of Surly SYX I had just picked up today. I also got to share it with my son who enjoyed it.
I’m not real good at the tasting notes thing…but here goes…
Smell - Real strong alcohol smell and a bit fruity…a little banana… ?
First taste - OMG…This is amazing…first you get big alcohol and then is turned a bit sour. The alcohol taste lingers and leaves a semi dry finish.
After the glass…I still taste a little sourish and dry tongue.
