look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy deep orange. Big white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Boozy. Toasty malt. Phenols. Lightly spicy.

Taste - Yikes. Boozy. Caramel and spicy rye. Lots of wheat. Phenolic Belgian yeast. And more booze.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Medium carbonation and heavy.

Overall - This is downright unpleasant.

Received in a trade and shared at a party at JLindros's place. Poured into a Kate the Great snifter. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured a clear honey hue with thin light wisps. No real lacing though

S - Quite phenolic, very very light fruit and esters.

T - Taste is loads of phenols, sweeter fruits, light sugary malts. LOADS of booze though.

M - Mouthfeel is on the thinner side with a good amount of alcohol noticeable.

O - Overall this beer was FAR too phenolic to be truly enjoyable. Still, a nice little tick.
