2.11/5 rDev -44.6%
Poured into a snifter on 6/1/12
A second contribution from Buggy. Keep 'em coming old bean.
A) Burnt, rusty brown. Not much head, of course.
S) Super sugary. Mostly burnt molasses with some maple syrup. Booze heat. Some caramel and, for some reason, vanilla.
T) This tastes truly sugary. What the hell? I've never had a beer this sugary. Molasses, caramel, cane sugar, high fructose corn syrup. Sugar candy s**t.
M) Thick, sweet, sugary feel. Carbonation is low and simply cannot hold up to the weight of the beer.
D) Even a little bit is too much.

A- Pours a deep caramel color. Head? None to be found, but not unexpected. Thick and syrupy looking.
S- Incredibly sweet, with some booziness. Maybe dark fruits and honey. Hard to nail down, but very sweet.
T- Sweet. Much like the nose, dark fruits and honey. Someone mentioned candy apples with cinnamon. Might not be too far off. Not nearly as hot as one would expect at 21% ABV. Don't misunderstand me...the alcohol is definitely there, but I have had beers with much lower ABV that were much hotter. I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so the sweetness doesn't bother me, but I don;t know that I could drink it routinely.
M- Syrupy with no carbonation. This is my least favorite aspect of this beer. A little too thick for me.
O- Overall, I like it. It's tasty and just a pleasant beer to drink. I'm sharing the bottle with my sons, because I think it would be a mistake to try to kill it alone. Enjoyable, but not for you if you don;t like sweetness.
