Was waiting to try this with Ralph. Bought while in Milwaukee.

Sorry Ralph, I couldn't wait any longer. Beer has a carmel hint with bitter hoppy after taste. The hop cone is a unique touch - adds to the bitterness.

From a bottle into a tulip glass, it pours a hazy amber, w/ a thin white head.
A reserved aroma. Sweet and grainy, rye bread, molasses. Pine needles, nuts, black pepper, and leather, all overlaying the sweetness. Plus some citrus--lime, actually.
Sweet and bready up front. Some will call this cloying; I love it. It's an adamant sweetness that tugs against the grassy hops all the way through this long, complex ride through flavor land. Brown sugar and biscuit, absolutely, plus some diacetyl that makes for a butterscotch candy delight. Wood and grass shake hands with the sweet notes and introduce the hop bitterness. The sweetness becomes tropical fruit in the presence of the hops, mango, I'd say. Finishes dry and salty, a long finish of simple syrup and oak aging mellowness. The alcohol says hello before it's done. And, yet, there's something not quite great about this flavor. Too busy, perhaps? Still, totally impressive.
Wonderful in the mouth, viscous, syrupy, creamy, despite the moderate, cleansing carbonation. Mouthfeel is the raison d'etre, here.
Massively complex. So many star turns for the various profiles. Will definitely divide audiences due to its uncompromising flavors.
