3.9/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

appearance; amber, very clear, huge, off white head that settles quickly but a very decent amount retains well.

smell; belgian yeast, burned sugar, bread, also a yeasty, almost fermented aroma which is somewhat off putting.

taste; bread, belgian yeast, subtle dark fruit, alcohol, caramel.

mouthfeel; full body, mild carbonation

overall; satisfying, pretty tasty, up to lagunitas standards but not something i would run to buy again.

Found this recent & was drawn to ABV initially . However, this is an outstanding beer. As others have noted a bit similar to DFH90 but a bit on the mellower side. Definitely a rich beer with the alcohol hidden. Be careful with one than one as it will sneak up on you.

Picked this up as part of a mixed 6, well, hate to admit it but it was because of the name. Very interesting. Good looking beer with an awesome smell that has a good bit going on. Very interesting beer, reminds me more of an IPA than anything, wasn't what I was expecting. Enjoyed it plus it gets a lot of bonus point due to the high ABV. Would get again depending upon cost.
