This beer packs a punch. At 12% ABV it can't be wrong for a good time. I first tried this beer at a cigar bar while trying to mix fine cigars with fine beer. I was not let down, however, I found this beer to have a strong alcohol taste. There is not much else for me to say about this beer. It will take your buzz to the next level, and make you question how you got to where you are since it finishes smooth and to the point.

This beer needs to be served in a sniffer as it has many aromas that can't be appreciated in a pint glass.

If you have a chance, pick up St. Bernardus's sampler that comes with a sniffer glass...well worth the money.
