Poured from a bottle into a NB chalice. Wet straw clolor, white head, low retention.
Smells sweet, fruity, and boozy.
My first notion when I drink this is that it is a port- a lighter colored citrus port. It actually reminds me a lot of a late harvest reisling.
It's hard to think of something to say about this one. Despite being nearly 19% it is (relatively) drinkable. It tastes nice and has a less thick mouthfeel than a North Coast Old Stock. Its flavor profile though kind of puts it outside of the realm of beer- it is just too heavy and lacks the nuance that I get with beer. The flavors that it has, are just too strong and cover up the other parts that I expect to find in a beer.
I'm glad that I snagged this when I saw it- it is hard to make a beer at this ABV, I might even snag another to age for 10 years, but there are quite a few beers that I would get before this one again.

If you are going to sell flat beer, skip the pretentious cork and cage for christ's sake. Don't make me use a pair of pliers to get the fucking cork out of the bottle. A standard cap would work just fine.
a: This was a clear, dark mahogany color. This was dead flat, it poured with no head.
s: Strong warmth, but not obnoxious heat coming out of this one. I found honey, sherry, faint soy sauce, rubbing alcohol, caramel, and cherry cough syrup.
t: Cough syrup comes to mind first, but this is pleasant enough overall. Warm but not hot sherry, sugary Raisin Bran raisins, alittle soy sauce around the edges, and some lingering sticky sweetness.
m: Thick and heavy. Not horrible for the style, but some buubles would have been nice.
o: Not bad overall. Interesting flavors, but this is over priced. I regret the purchase.
