Large shared bottle.

Spicy and dark fruit notes in the nose. Hints of brandy.

Body seems a bit light but is fairly smooth for the very high ABV.

Nice complexity. A bit boozy in the finish.

Enjoyed on Zwanze Day at the Holy Grale

A. Pours moderately thick with a deep mahogany color with amber hints. Fine bubble head. Moderate to high viscosity.

S. The nose is caramel, booze, boozy oak, dark chocolate, and toffee. The cognac is present.

T. The taste follows the nose consistently with major notes of cognac, toffee, vanilla, marshmallows, hazelnuts, figs, and bread pudding. Certainly boozy but not unpleasant - I mean this is a beast. There is sweetness but it comes through to balance the flavors and blends to the flavors.

M. Smooth for the abv, moderate carbonation, and FULL body. Sticky.

O. This is an excellent treat. Very big beer. Bold flavors makes this one worth the acclaim. I'm happy I was able to try this so I do not need to search it out. Anchorage brought their A game.
