DC Brau Brewing Co. (Washington, DC) will be canning On The Wings of Armageddon in December. Perfect for the end of the world right? According to Mayan and Hopi calendars the “transition from one world age to another” will happen on December 21, 2012.
At first glance, it has an orange hue in the glass with a viscus, rocky head that refuses to dissipate. Upon first sniff there are dominate aromas of citrus, white grapes and grapefruit with light bread and biscut notes. After the first sip we taste a mellow bitterness that only grows as more is consumed. Moderately carbonated, deceptively smooth, refreshingly dry and extremely heady for a beer at 9.2% ABV.
Expect these bad boys shortly after the end of days. If we are still here that is…
