Birthday 4-pack from my lovely wife! Whatta woman!
Pours a deep shade of caramel (really dark) with a big fat head of creamy off-white bubbles. Looks great.
Smell is good but rather one dimensional. Got the whole caramel toffee bready biscuit thing going on. Don't know if I actually smell the booze, but my eyes tend to dry a little as I stick my sniffer over the glass.
I docked the smell score a little for being one dimensional but the taste is one dimensionally awesome. Taste like caramel infused with straight liquor baby. Bottle says 11.5%, Daddy says thank you North Coast! Can almost taste some of the bready characteristics but mostly caramel booze. I like. I like a lot. This is a beer for men.
Light on the carbonation, very full bodied, almost have to chew it, syrupy. I need more. I just love a beer that fights back.
Overall: great friggin beer people
