Very complicated beer regarding it's recipe, aging and blending. It's astounding how well it comes together.

Gorgeous beer - actually pours pitch black with oil-like consistency. Incredible aroma of sweet booze - brandy primarily. The rich chocolate comes through, very fudgy. Some rum coconut, and some vanilla sweetness. The cinnamon is prominent, very slight vegetal note from the peppers. Everything is in great balance. When it warms great barrel aromas come out - cigar box, tobacco, char, and more of the apple brandy.

Tastes vibrant and lush - very slick and full mouthfeel, though a little thinner than reg huna and zhukov. The flavors keep hitting - wave after wave, huge finish. Great brandy booziness and heat. All the aforementioned flavors from the aroma shine through on the palate with more vanilla.

It is over-the-top in it's intensity but so well balanced. This juice is from another planet.

poured from a 750ml bottle into a snifter

Appearance: Pours the darkest thing I have ever seen, this is darker than the abyss. The head lasted only a second and deflated quickly. The ring of foam is clay brown and is the most colorful head I have ever seen. World Class.

Aroma: Smells massively of dark fruit, dates and raisins, then comes vanilla and clove. Second wave is spice and chocolate wrapped fig. The wood makes a strong appearance as it warms some spice and molasses as well as more vanilla. I have never smelled a beer as complex and explosively aromatic as this. World Class again.

Taste: The flavors here are border line indescribable but ill try, dark fruit, candied raisin, clove, vanilla and milk chocolate, hints of cayenne and chili. More dark chocolate combined with dates and strong fig notes. After swallow gives a hint of candied apple and slightly tart fig with a spiced finish of chili. Another World Class.

Mouthfeel: Extremely viscous yet smooth and silky with light full carbonation. Slight tingle from the peppers.

Overall: If you know nothing about this beer educate yourself. It may be the best beer I have ever had to date. So much in fact that i'm not writing anymore and i'm going to continue drinking.

Big thanks for Aarondrinks for sharing!
