Walkabout "Jabberwocky Ale"
Walkabout Brewing Company - Central Point, Oregon USA
English Strong Ale (ABV 7%) (IBU 35)

[Best served in a Nonic Pint glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear medium brown with some reddish highlights and a large (3-4 finger) light brown frothy head that had great retention, reducing to a med cap and having good streaky lacing.

The aroma was of a dark bread malt, floral hops and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of toffee, dark fruit (plums, figs and overripe grapes) and a mild nuttiness.

The taste was very malty with a nice toffee sweetness from the onset, becoming fully robust with a bold dark fruit presence and a mild hoppiness towards the finish. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow with a good fruity maltiness and a slight alcohol warming sensation left to linger.

Mouthfeel was just under medium in body with a dry oily texture and a ticklish carbonation.

Overall a fully robust and flavorful brew that possessed a nice light sweet fruitiness, which worked perfectly along with the slight hoppy presence...
