I was expecting a big hitter and got it....
Appearance: Looks the part...black with a slight redish brown 1/8 inch creamy head...
Smell: Reminds me of Dogfish WWS a little with a little of that soy sauce impression...big rich maltiness..oak..bourbon....vanilla...a very nice maple note...a little molasses....great smelling shit.
Taste: More subtle than I expected..I get a lot of maple/molasses at the start...a little charred bong resin....vanilla...oak....anise..licorice....a little of the soy sauce....bourbon soaked prunes and berries....quite complex and outstanding.
Mouthfeel: High side of full bodied...creamy...has a little alcoholic burn but fuck it's 11%, I didn't expect it to taste like Mich Ultra....
Drinkability: This is pricey and a treat but one of the best....I'd love to have 12 or so of these for special occasions....I'd love to pair it with a big rich Cuban cigar...

July 2014. On Tap at Rattle n Hum. Better than a extra Birthday that doesn't shorten your life span. As a matter of fact this adds so much pleasure to the day, it's like doubling down on this particular 24 hours. At 15%...Hey, WTF...I'm on board.
02/21/12 From bottle. Rattle n Hum, NYC. If this was the only brew in the world I would not be unhappy. Been drinking it, whenever possible, for years & even with the switch to Budweiser It's still a superb brew.
Serving type: on-tap
