Bottle traded for and shared by Curran for my birthday dinner. Thanks dude!

Pours a fairly dark brown, with a small quarter inch head, and basically no lacing, save for a few faint stripes. Looks really, really oily.

Smells really strongly of roasted, caramelized hazelnuts, plus intensely sweet bourbon, vanilla, and searing booze.

This is one strong mofo of a beer, and incredibly sweet. If you drink it fast, it's cloying, but if you drink it slowly, it's not as sweet, and much more doable. There's sugary vanilla cream, roasted hazelnut, hazelnut frosting, chocolate syrup, sweet syrupy bourbon, and a big boozy heat. It's kind of like drinking hazelnut gasoline, really. It's delicious, but it's so hard to drink large amounts of this.

The body is slightly thinner than I would've expected, but it has a creamy, sticky, oily mouthfeel, and an almost non-existent amount of carbonation.

An unbelievably extreme beer here, it's done well, but you must share the bottle or you will die.
