Review: Garrison Spruce Beer
Appearance: Pours rich dark brown with a ruby red hue. Minimal phone but there's a bit of a late creaminess
Aroma: Notes of Spruce, Molasses a bit of sugar. Very sweet caramelly brown ale. Heavy on the malt and a light amount of bitterness from the spruce/fir tips and hops.
Taste: This is fairly hoppy and bitter from the hops and spruce tips, some sweet Molasses notes, brown sugar and candy. Reminiscent in ways to a doppelbock: dark fruit, raisiny and caramelly.. very sweet! Light earthiness and notes of pine.
Overall Thoughts: A very sweet beer, malt forward and bit bitter from the spruce and hops used. A bit reminiscent of a doppelbock - with spruce tips. I like it! 7.5% ABV
