Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue X:
A beauty of a frothed mess for the head, sea foam-like sticky lace shows the beer wants to hang around for a while. Almost clear, copper-hued brew, perhaps just a light chill haze here. Malt bomb is what the nose says, with layers of sweetness, toasted bread and yeasty fruitiness from the fermentation. Aromas of peppercorn, vanilla beans and exotic fruit from the alcohol. Very rich mouthfeel with a dense smoothness and solid medium body. With each sip, the flavors try to reach the taste buds all at once. Lots of maltiness for the palate to register, with caramel sweetness and toasted grain holding steady. Hops actually come in higher than the aroma had let on, bitterness helps to balance this big beer out and the flavor seems to have more play, with fresh-cut grass and citric tones. Finishes a little chewy and semisweet with some lingering hop flavor.
Yeah, this is a big beer. A little rough around the edges, but that is the Dead Guy way, right? We are just as much proponents of session beer as we are of big beers. With this bottle, we're asked again if a strong beer can be a session beer.
