Probably everybody knows the story by now: 15 malts, 15 hops, 15% ABV, 15th year anniversary.

The malts are specialty 2 row, best malz vienna, canada munich, canada wheat, fawcett chocolate, fawcett crystal rye malt, fawcett dark crystal, canada rye malt, MFB caramunich 40, Best Malt Caramel malt pils, Best Malz caramel malt light, MFB Kiln amber, wyermann chocolate wheat, G&P flaked oats, flaked spelt, and flaked quinoa.

The hops are ahtanum, amarillo, apolla, cascade, centennial, citra, columbus, crystal, fuggle, golding, palisade, simcoe, summit, tettnang, and willamette.

In addition, they used rice hulls, promozyme, biocellulase, whirfloc, servomyces, 700lbs of cane sugar, 50lbs of raw sugar, and 55lbs of dark candi sugar with a 225 minute boil. Whew!
$5.49 for a 22oz bottle. What a deal.

Pours out to a very dark brown, near black, forming a dense creamy dark tan head with superior retention and solid lacing. Mild to moderate carbonation. The aroma is rich with dark fruits...prunes, dates, figs, carob, raisins, rum, milk chocolate, leather, and moist pipe tobacco. When swirled, I get an interesting green ho character. Lovely stuff, this. The mouthfeel is dense, syrupy and thoroughly coats the mouth and tongue. The taste is a recap of the aroma...all the dark fruits in droves, followed by carob and pipe tobacco, and a green hop nose. Honestly, I could stand to use more bittering hops to balance this sucker out. Sharp acidity, no doubt from the copious hops. I think adding some gypsum would help this as well. Long aftertaste of dark fruit. The alcohol is not as potent as one would think. The flavors are so rich, it overwhelms what you otherwise would pick up in something more subtle.

A lovely beer. Well worth storing and aging. Highly recommended.
