So, I went to the Transmitter website to research this beer and I was ecstatic to see that they finally updated their website with information about all of their beers. It also had the recommended temperatures to serve at and if they think the beer is worth cellaring. If you haven’t been to the site, check it out.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Brewery made candi sugar adds rich toffee flavors with a hints of fig and raisins. Enjoy with game, roast meats and campfires.”
Random: This beer comes in at 22 IBUs and should be served at 42 degrees.
The brew poured with a huge, four finger, ecru colored head. It dissipated at a snail’s pace and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy, mahogany color with only some carbonation visible due to the cloudiness. The nose was filled with booze, figs, toffee, candi sugar and Belgian yeast. It also had a caramel candy note, like the candy that my grandmother used to carry in her purse that would make my fingers sticky. The taste was sweet, but not overly so. It had notes of fig and toffee with dates and dusty raisins. There was also some caramel and almond at the end. The body was on the thicker side and the carbonation was too intense. The finish was quick and sweet with caramel. I paid $16.99 for the bottle, which came to $.77 per ounce. I wanted to love this beer, but it was a rare miss for me from Transmitter.
