This is a delicious experience of an over the top beer. So you say you like hops? So you say you like malts? Strap yourself in for a heavy, rich, flavor experience like no other I've had. This beer is a sipper, and each sip will bring a multilayered (15 of each to be precise) wave of hops and malts that is a treat for your tongue.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 22 oz bottle into an oversized snifter

Pours darkest of browns. No light penetrates through. Tan colored head that froths and bubbles like an active volcano. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a ring of bubbles in the center of the glass.

Smells of chocolate, figs, plums and brown sugar, Syrupy sweet with a faint hint of alcohol. Hops are muted. A bit of citrus lies under the surface. Fantastic blend of dark, sweet aromas. Very complex aroma profile. I can't wait to taste.

Chocolate and candi sugar flavors that blend with figs, plums and syrup. Very sweet, yet very tasty. No alcohol burn whatsoever. All of these dark and heavy flavors never clash or create a mess. It is an extremely well integrated beer.

Medium bodied and creamy with appropriate carbonation. nice long finish. Falls just short of being cloying. Easy to drink for such a big, sweet and complex beer.

A great offering by He'Brew. And the price point is excellent. You'll be hard pressed to find better value. If you enjoy big, sweet, complex beers then it's a must try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Growler obtained from Whole Foods; Poured in a snifter.

A - Two inch light khaki and super creamy head with excellent retention; Very, very dark brownish, ruby color; A little lacing around the glass

S - Very nice and complex - I get new aromas every time I take a sniff; Orange and grapefruit hop aromas; Very sweet caramel and toffee; Lots of spices including cinnamon and ginger; Dark and bitter chocolate; Tobacco with woody and leathery notes; Faint presence of alcohol, but it's hidden very well

T - Pretty similar and just as awesome as the nose; Again, dark and bitter chocolate, tobacco, sweet caramel, toffee, hints of citrus hops, and a touch of spice and dark fruits towards the finish; Lots of sweetness in this beer, though it does turn a little bitter later in the sip; Tad bit of alcohol in the taste, but the collection of flavors mask this nicely

M - Very nice and creamy texture; Full bodied and has a nice chewy-like quality; Small amount of carbonation; Decent amount of warmth in the finish

O - This is just an excellent beer all around. To have 15 different varieties of malts and hops and 15% ABV, it's pretty impressive how well the flavors all come together. This is a brew to sip over time, but honestly you would never know the amount of alcohol just by tasting/smelling it. I may not get another chance to try this impressive brew, but I'm glad I had the chance to enjoy it as a nice treat after the busy holiday season.

4.55/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a snifter: Black body with deep crimson highlights under a mocha collar & island of bubbles. No lacing, but it's got legs.

Smell is...oooohhh. Deeply malty with a rich sugar character like stewing dark fruits, slightly vinous alcohol presence that gains some momentum as it warms.

Taste follows the smell, with a dense, dark, sweet fruit character, caramel, even a pound cake quality. Very mild roastiness, & a slightly rum-like alcohol character.

Full-bodied, just rolls on back & rests like a blanket. Smooths, coats the palate without being heavy & overwhelming.

Wow, this is frickin' awesome. Big & flavorful while not totally overloading you in any aspect, & dangerously drinkable. Hides the booze very well. Cheers to Shmaltz on this one!

4.55/5  rDev +13.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Dark, dark brown, with a little red around the edges. About a 1/2 inch mocha colored head

S: This basically smells like Parabola. It is super sweet and there's almost nothing you don't smell in here. Got a dark liquor with some coconut, small amounts of hoppiness, lots of dark chocolate and vanilla as well

T: Follows the smell fairly well. Very, very complex. Got lots of coffee and dark chocolate notes upfront, which transitioned into a smooth vanilla and can definitely pick up some alcohol in this one.

M: Very thick and bordering on syrupy. About what I would expect as a culmination of the other characteristics of the beer. Got a slight alcohol burn as well.

Overall this on is tops. Just about the best value out there for $5-7 a bomber. Would recommend to anybody and I will be picking up more to cellar.
