Pours a dark brown color with a big fluffy white head.
Aromas are spicy, bright, floral, sweet, and bubblegum like. This beer has a very complex and interesting nose.
For such a huge beer, this surprisingly light in flavor, but still quite complex. Up front, the flavor is bright and crisp, with excellent carbonation noted. Beer then settles into a malty creamy backbone, with a baked apple flavor, and bready biscuit notes. Finish is tart, but also a bit sweet and dark sugary.
Mouthfeel is excellent, carbonation is about as good as it gets.
Drinkability is unbelievably good for such a high ABV beer. It is so tasty, light, yet complex, and super easy to drink. Wow... what a great beer! With that said, I still have to give a 4.5, because it is still a beast.
This one came to me from nathan15 in the BIF race. Thanks!

A : Dark brown. Poured with a lively half inch head that quickly disappeared. Looks like what I'd come to expect the style to look like, but nothing remarkable different.
S: New to trying put names to smells in beers, but I get some plum and what I'll call other dark fruit, and a breaded smell. Not an explosion of different smells to me, but enjoyable none the less.
T: Taste follows the nose without the bread, with the alcohol being the main addition. Smelled a little better than it tasted to me which I guess means the alcohol did not benefit the taste.
M: Bubbly effervescent as I'm accustomed to and enjoy with the style and enjoyable. Not experienced enough doing reviews to nail down why I know I prefer the Westy 12 mouthfeel to this.
O: A great example of the style, and a quality brew. Overall ranking likely impacted by this not being my favorite style of beer.
