2009 Release - 22 oz bottle poured into tulip.
Got this as an extra from GoGriz. Thanks, Cody!
A: Very dark amber, thick-looking pour. Light khaki head with excellent formation and retention. Very nice looking in the glass!
S: Strong is the first word that comes to mind. Strong maltiness, strong sugar, strong hops (sort of earthy smell to the hops). Quite a pleasant assault on the nose!
T: Wow! Very intense flavors. Roasted malts, caramel, slightly fruity. Hops give a really strong show on the aftertaste. This beer reminds me of NOTHING that I have ever had before!
M: Full-bodied, creamy, smooth. The 10.5% shows itself, but you don't seem to notice because your tongue is using every bit of your available brain power trying to process the wonderful taste overload...
D: This bottle disappeared so fast that it should come with a warning not to have more than one in the house at a time.
This is going on my favorites list!
