Oskar Blues Winter Fidy

While at Al’s of Hampden, I ordered a glass of Oskar Blues Winter Fidy, a beer that I was not aware existed. The beer pours a black color with a frothy tan head. The aroma consists of juniper, cardamom, chocolate, and a healthy helping of alcohol. The taste is smooth and chocolaty with good juniper and cardamom accents. The floral side of this beer is amazing and alcohol is well hidden, but it really provides an experience like no other beer. Some coffee flavor peeks through on the finish. The alcohol content is 10.5% ABV. The balance of flowers and chocolate worked better than I could have ever imagined and I really want to have another glass of this beer.
