Phillips Burley Wine 2008
Ratebeer 3.34 73 percentile
Beer Advocate B+
No preamble, just straight to the review.
The nose is nothing but grain (barley) and alcohol. The first sip is a strong bite of bitter/sour fruits which is strangely addictive. The next flavour that follows is the slight bitterness of hops. There is almost no carbonation. Overtop of it all is a big mouthful of sweet bing cherries.
You are left with this mouthful of rotting fruit that slowly fades.
Alcohol +1 9.5%
Ouch, one can easily drink this beer very quickly. You can taste the alcohol, but the big malt and fruit flavours make it more palatable.
In terms of alcohol to cost ratio, this one can't be beat at $5 for 650ml.
Ingame Enhancement +1
After quickly finishing off this beer, the zombies didn't seem so scary.
This is a beer to have once a year, and that is about it
