Pours dark caramel with a huge 2" plus tan frothy head. Crazy lacing & head retnetion
Smell; Sweet malt, piney hops, alcohol & fruticake
Taste: Huge fruitty malts, piney hops & oaky wooden taste. dryness and alcohol on the finish
MF Chewy & well balanced. More like a port or maderia (sp)
Not too too drinkable, this is just too much!
If you want big beer, can't beat this. Great when you are ready to take a snooze or get a straight jacket on...yummy
