Small little 2 oz pour provided by Bob at his tasting.

Pours out a still dark brown, with no head, or lacing. A guess I should've expected that.

Smells like a rush of booze. Some burnt brown sugar and dark fruit.

Tastes more like a liquor than a beer for sure, much like Utopias. However, at 29%, Utopias hides its alcohol a bit better than this 14% quad/barleywine/strong ale/monstrosity. Huge alcohol burn, followed by vanilla, dark fruits, and burnt sugars. Very Cognac like.

Medium bodied, feels silky and delicate on the tongue. Alcohol content is very noticeable.

An interesting beer, but not one I'd want much of again due to how hot it is.

A-EBF sample pour. Body is thick and viscous. Dark brown color.

S-Big notes of dark fruits. Smells a bit like a port or sherry. The aroma was very rich. Also there was some alcohol in the nose.

T-The four yeasts used really bring out different flavors. The sherry, Barleywine and Trappist yeasts are the most noticeable. It tastes like sherry, and it also has flavors synonymous with both Barleywines and dark Belgian beers. Dark, booze-soaked fruits, rich brown sugar and some vinous flavors.

M-Flat. Viscous and pleasurably oily. Alcohol is actually more forgiving than one would expect it to be.

O/D-I have only had a few beers like this one. The Xyauyu beers are similar. This one is awesome and should be tried if the opportunity arises. I would like to grab a bottle and age it.
