This might be the highest abv beer I've reviewed.

a- Very dark brown. Not much of head but might be the tenders pour.

S- Balsamic vinegar and a lighter, nice, clean RIS mixed together.

T- Very good. Moderately strong alcohol, a bit of red licorice, some american hops, better than average belgian dark ale profile which, in this case means lots of darker fruit and "wintery" spices. Red wine and maple flavors can't be ignored either.

M- Well its definitely good. But i don't think its, just right. too prickly and not smooth enough to handle all the sweetness and alcohol in this bomb. Dry enough which feels good for such a high alcohol beer.

D- Well, very good but... Don't have too much fun drinking this... you might die. Seriously. They made a very good job making this but I've got half a glass in me and I'm pretty sure (100%) this should be my last one of the night. Be smart or sleep in a ditch.

Damn! This its strong. ...but good. I recommend it but try and split it... Three, Four, Five ways...

Even if you trying to be a big man.

Thanks to Thor from Brasserie Beck for this one.

Overall, if anyone has a bottle of this, hang onto it for a while. My friends and I noted that we think it hasnt fully carbonated (or hardly carbonated at all) and the sugars that are to be eaten by yeast to make it carbonated have obviously not been eaten yet.

A: Black with dark brown highlights very viscous with no head or lacing. Even some sediment is present in this! I got a smear of what looks to be spent hops or malty syrup on my glass and in the bottle it looked like a riverbed of silt!

S: This is definitely the best part, and makes me think this will be a promising beer over time. Huge coffee roast, barley, chocolate, some resiny hops and sweet alcohol as well. Meaty, savory notes are there also.

T: Huge malty molasses flavor that is very sweet...some coffee, espresso, dark chocolate, dark fruit, prunes, and sugary cake. Too sweet right now, I think the carbo issue will help this cause it has potential to be great.

M: Smooth but no carbonation and chewy. Again, theres the carbo issue, but I like how smooth and hidden the 15% is!

D: Just way too sweet right now, but has lots of potential to be great. Love to try this later when perhaps they figure out what went wrong with this batch.
