12 oz bottle..wish I recalled who sent this my way. Regardless, thank you!

Rusty crimson with a thin froth that dips to minimal cap and light ring.

Vanilla, caramel, butterscotch (the nice non-infected kind), big brown sugar, oak, and mounds and mounds of additional brown sugar. Deep and decadent on the nose.

Drinks like a liquified sundae...melted butterscotch, vanilla ice cream, toffee, pralines, bourbon leaves a light whisper of a lashing across the finish. Non invasive but complimentary and supportive.

Low carbonation, heavy on the tongue but slick enough on the back end to make this eminently approachable.

12%? Booze is expertly kept in check. Flavors weave together seemlessly....Alex, Geddy, and Neil at their best. Hold Your Fire? A debate for another night...

Murky brown with an aggressive head for being such a high abv. Solid retention.

Real sweet smells. Vanilla wafers, butterscotch, english toffee.

Sweet and robust flavors. More nilla wafers and ton of butterscotch with toffee. More vanilla in the finish. Light leather.

The mouthfeel is a real treat. So soft and smooth. Full bodied with low carbonation. Big, yet delicate.

One of the best, if not the best, wee heavy I can recall trying. I'd definitely recommend seeking this out and hope to have it again sometime.

I called this a wee too heavy. I had one that I bought around Christmas, I think, and it sat for around four months in my fridge. That should not have done much one way or another to the taste. It might have allowed the hops to die down.

The appearance was of root beer. Nothing too special in the aroma - booze and sweet malts.

The taste was sweet and not too boozy. There were little hops or yeast tastes, I expected some. The aftertaste was also sweet.

It definitely is a sweet, boozy thing. Not something I really need to do again.
