Stained Mahogany. Bubbly oily tan head. Good glow.

Oak. Salt. meat. Heavily malted licorice and anise smell. Plum and Cinnamon.

Very bitter. Malt forward. Smoky alcoholic and dry. Very heavy desert-like the flavors. A very powerful ale. Bourbon. Dark and tart fruits, especially date. Mincement pie and pecan. Slightly sour. Malt finish.

One of the biggest and boldest beer's I've had. Even more serious than last years once in a lifetime Lucky Bastard. I think this beer would fit best in the hand of a heavily bearded Death metal fan. I am listening to Obituary while sipping this. I am bowled over by this beer. It's seriously brutal I respect that but I think it might need some more age to mellow it out.

A dark hazy toffee with a fizzy beige head. The nose is honey and warm boozy with a touch of pine and subtle citrus. The taste is honey again and vanilla oak with a small amount of orange. The mouthfeel is heavy and a bit chewy. This is more of a SUPER Strong Ale, actually a Barley Wine but makes a nice sipper and is quite drinkable for such a large ABV.
