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.
