Nice amber color, highly alcoholic nose
The taste is bitter almost sour...maybe acid aldehyde. I want to have faith in this beer, and hope it's not infected. Finishes with a taste like acetone.
Very dank and hoppy. Slightly thin to medium body. Would have expected more body from a beer this big. The malt flavor is somewhat overpowering.
It's drinkable, but either needs some time, or a different bottle then one I drank.
I did enjoy this beer despite the bottle itself being suspect.
Serving type: bottle
