look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a bottle into a Prairie Teku glass. Bottle courtesy of solo103, and shared with Abbbp, who teamed up with me to snag this whale.

Appearance: The beer pours a pitch black motor oil, with a tiny but persistent head the color of pennies. Not much in the way of lacing. I've never seen a darker head than this one, it's as copper as they come. Gorgeous.

Smell: Strong alcohol, but loads of apples and cinnamon, on top of chocolate and chiles. If there are hints of vanilla, they mix in with the cinnamon. Like an apple pie and then some, really.

Taste: Definitely a lot of alcohol again, which is fine because what lies beneath it is so amazing. Lots of cinnamon, the apple brandy is strong here too. Chiles contribute a vague heat but more of the actual chile flavor, which of course plays very nicely with all other components involved, such as the cacao nibs and the vanilla. The only knock I have against this is the booziness.

Mouthfeel: Motor oil. Thick and sticky. Seals my mouth shut. A perfect amount of carbonation on this, which is to say it's relatively low. Just enough to keep the beer nice and full-bodied.

Overall: Yeah, this lived up to the hype.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Received in a trade (BB Flora was essentially what it cost me). Split with great company over an intense weekend of tastings

A- My god...the thickest of thick. Multiple people dropped their jaw at the sight of this one as it slipped into the glass. Motor oil. Glass may be permanently stained. Little to no head

S- Love the brandy and rum mix. Chocolate donuts and milk chocolate.

T- Rich, sweet, malty goodness. Cocoa. Faint spice layered in with the rum. The rum seems to be picked up more than the brandy. Still a little bit of the teryaki notes that I got from the base beer.

M- Creamy, chewy. Oh so rich. Hefty booze, but not distracting. Maybe the best feel of any barrel aged beer i have had

O- Very complex. Intensely sweet. The base is present, but certainly takes it up a number of notches. Let it warm up and enjoy
