Pours dark brown with murky shoulders and an inch-plus head of dense tan foam. A partial skim coat remains on the surface along with some dotted lacework.
Aromatics are roasty, chocolaty, and boozy. Shades of Kahlua, nougat, espresso, dark rum and pine sap follow through.
Full bodied, a bit syrupy and a certainly chewy mouthfeel.
Dark chocolate, booze-laced dark fruits, and charred malt start the palate. Resinous, bitter, and piney hops step forward but are muted by the strong alcohol presence and roasty, malty character.
Finishes with some lingering heat, chewy malt and some faint grapefruit.
Big beer. Tough call weather to enjoy what hops there are now or cellar for a year or two to allow the heat to subside and flavors to integrate. A bit rough around the edges now but I love a big beer!
