Purchased from Champagne's for $7.99 22oz bottle. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a nice head that is gone within a minute to a film. Dark amber gold color. Super dark almost brown.

S- A lot of malt here. Tons of hops.

T- Super rich and complex. Honey galore. Scotch overtones.

M- Super thick and creamy.

O- Nice beer but very heavy. Enjoyable fresh and am looking forward to an aged one in a year or two.

Food Pairing

This wonderful big beer went well with....... Chicken wings with medium hot sauce. Blue cheese really pairs well.

Enjoy
