Russian River Mortification
Russian River Brewing – Russian River Mortification – On tap at the 2011 San Diego Strong Ale Festival. 11% abv.
Appearance: Pours a deep translucent dark amber with a thin film of white swirls.
Aroma: Toasted malt, dark fruit and flowers or floral perfume.
Taste: Burnt sugar, dark fruit, bitter hops.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: I was expecting this would be sweeter than it was. I like a stickier sweeter quadruple. Still very solid, and something I’d love to see bottled for keepsake.
