Seriously happened to stumble on this one at the tap room, right as it was put on. We had no frickin clue about the brewery itself, let alone what this beer was all about. It was mindblowing. But it was also the top of the keg. I went back the next day and it was gone. They laughed when we were surprised.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip. Batch 91.

A: Pours a dark brown with gigantic 3-4 finger off white head that lasts several minutes and leaving lots of sticky lacing.

S: Raisin, plum, and sweet malts. A bit of tobacco and leather and oak wood.

T: Sweet malts and subtle dark fruits. Raisins and an earthy touch that reminds me a bit of tobacco and smoked meats.

M: Full bodied and lots of carbonation. Finish is drier than I was expecting.

O: This is a unique strong ale, and very enjoyable. I look forward to my next HOTD brew!
