Probably the dankest, skunkiest aroma I've encountered in a beer, along with sharp notes of grapefruit. Flavor reveals a sweet caramel malt backbone contrasted by more sharp grapefruit. The finish is resiny, earthy, and lightly bitter.

This is one mother of a beer! One of the best strong ales I've had and the sad thing is I can only get it this time of year. If you take a breathe of this in, it's like sticking your nose in a bag of brown sugar. Very sweet up front on the nose. Goes down malty, fig, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, a mildly spiced brew. Overall, I am in love with this beer. I wish they did some variety for this, age it in some whiskey, bourbon, rye barrels. Give it an even better kick.
