10.4% ABV, Draft
Appearance: Black with a small head.
Aroma: Bourbon and vanilla; very strong.
Taste: Lots of booze, with some vanilla coming through at the end.
Mouthfeel: Strong bodied.
If you think you know strong beers, think again. Saugatuck’s taproom-only Dramanatrixxx features a strong bourbon and vanilla flavor that’s on par with some of the best aged stouts available today. This is definitely a sipper, and with some slight chocolate at the end, this is a rich, unique brew.
I’d compare Dramanatrixxx to some of Founders’ best specialty brews (specifically KBS), but without the coffee this is a slightly sweeter brew. All in all, this has to be one of my favorite beers I’ve tried in quite a while.
