Poured from a bomber into a stemmed tulip glass and shared with friends
2013 Vintage (Orange Wax)

Pours dark black, with a small tan head. The nose blows your hair back with deep roasted malts, very sweet notes of sugar, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, molasses. I was expecting it to be more bitter with ‘darker’ aromas, but this beer is sticky sweet. The taste is even more so, massive malt bill here and the flavor holds true with an overpowering yet complex sweetness. Lots of different flavors there of rich toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, some soy sauce and tobacco, surprisingly complex for such a rich, sweet beer. The mouthfeel is awesome, so rich and creamy, silky smooth (maybe a touch cloying, but not overly).
