Big and sweet, but pleasantly spicy. Handsome red-brown color with plenty of foam in the Kasteel chalice. Fizzy and satisfying on the tongue.

Rich, deeply malt with a sugary, almost candy taste. Good, though! Some roasted malt flavors plus Drambuie liqueur and definitely a jigger of Yukon Jack. The hops are waiting patiently to add their bitter burn to the cornucopia of flavors. Very warming down the throat but it doesn't taste of alcohol. A bitter finish but the waves of butterscotch keep on coming.

For an abundantly flavored brew, even more plump than the average DIPA, this is worth a try. Very pleasant sipping strong beer. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Central Market - Shoreline in north Seattle.

Pours copper with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows floral and piny hops along with resinous notes. Some sweet clean malt underneath.
Minty, spicy, herbal and resinous hops as flavours. Also booze and sweet bready malt followed by an aggressive bitterness that doesn't quite match the malt.
Syrupy body. Could be a little lighter perhaps.
