Well, this bottle has been out of the box for at least six hours, time for it to meet its...me. Thanks & a flame of eternal gratitude for my lovely proxy, moose3285. 750ML bottle split with my wife while watching Jake & Elwood. I hate Illinois Nazis.
Pour is surprisingly dark, because I always think of quads as not being dark. On the extreme spectrum of dark red with a slow, low jam of carbonation. The smell, oh holy diamonds, the smell is on a mission from God. Coconut, vanilla, rum, spices, pirate aftershave. Beautiful.
Forgotten Island blows my expectations into the stratosphere. Massive backlash of rum provides a tasty canvas for the brew, which is bass-akwards. Reams of vanilla, toffee, caramel, sea salt, molasses, browns sugar, spices, & other stuff I can't pick out vie for attention; more complex than Euler's formula. Mouthfeel is thick thick, the molasses & brown sugar carries over into a bruiser. Doesn't seem to be any alcohol. I'll ask my feet later, if I can locate them.
After all the teenage hand-wringing over "gee, we didn't get a triple barrel imperial sour stout" over the El Cat club, this beer kicks the fuck out of...me. Good god. Startlingly unique, with a fantastic use of rum barrels & what can only be a magnificent base beer, this is a beer worth savoring. Top-shelf.
