This is a profoundly good beer. The head is sculpture. My first encounter was on draft at Floyd's in Seattle. I've tried batches in the 20's, 30's,40s, and 50's, with tonight being #52. The last time was #33. This beer is an example of Beer as Art. It is beguiling. Like a good meal the components are so integrated that no one element stands out. They tease. The flavour changes from Imperial Stout to Harvest Ale. All the leathery,woody, chocolatey flavors dance interchangeably throughout the taste. When I think I have a flavor pegged it changes. Alan Sprints is an alchemist. This is gold turned into beer.

What can I say...all my favorite components beautifully balanced in a creamy, voluptuous body. Leather, wood, smoke, figs, tobacco, and chocolate. Reasonably dry, and constantly compelling, drawing you in for another luxurious sip. Simply amazing, and even more incredible than the bottled version.

Serving type: nitro-tap
