Pours a very dark, murky brown color. 3 finger tan head and lots of foam rise up. Head retention and lacing are extremely good, especially for such a high alcohol beer.
Smell is heavy on candied belgian rock sugar. Sweet molasses, burnt biscuit, and roasted malt are also present. Hops arent present but a distinct high abv beer booze aroma is.
Taste is big on astringent alcohol, balanced by sweet candied sugar and syrupy burnt malts. A strong,smoky, dry scotch-like flavor which is uncommon for the style is dominant.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and well carbonated. Head contributed a smooth creaminess to beer. Finish was semi dry and astringent.
Overall this beer was good but a bit too heavy on the booze side. Strong, malt forward flavors make this a complex beer, but I think it needs to age acouple more years before its at its prime drinking state.
