Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Co. Centennial Martyr Double IPA

The Thr3e Wise Men Brewing Company is in Indianapolis, Indiana.

This 8.0% DIPA pours a medium-dark brown with orange-amber in color.  It is cloudy and slightly translucent, but not transparent.  There is a small light brown head that leaves very light lacing down the glass.  It is only lightly carbonated.  The aroma is fruity, spicy, with a rye-like maltiness.  The taste is plum jam and a bit of dark cherry jam on a rich, toasted, biscuity scone.  The malt is deep and rich, toasted and nutty as the beer goes along.  There is a slight sweetness, then the spiciness from the aroma is apparent, just before a suddenly dry and bitter finish. The flavors are all apparent in the aftertaste and as it progresses, some tobacco and strong iced tea with lemon are noted.  This is a beer chock full of flavors.
