Melvin Brewing Eureka Assembled Armor - 500ml Bottle
98/100 from Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine
Barrel aged blended strong ale with sesame seeds, maple syrup, smoked sea salt and cinnamon.
This blend is comprised of Imperial Stouts and Barleywines which aged separately for 2+ years in bourbon and rye whiskey barrels. After sampling and assembling the blend, toasted white and black sesame seeds were added, along with maldon smoked sea salt, maple syrup and Saigon cinnamon to enhance the beer's expressions already derived from oak, grist, water, yeast, and time.
15% ABV, 15 IBUs
“Complex molasses, earthy tobacco, dark fudgy chocolate greet the nose. Layers of caramel malt remind you of the barleywine element. The flavor goes more milk chocolate, dough, intricate layers of dark fruits. Alcohol adds spice. Luscious sweetness closes the sip with chocolate-covered dates.” -98/100, Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine
