2007 Batch 5
Cloudy mahogany color yielded a tan smooth head. Nose is quite loaded with fig. Do get some caramel, mint leaves and alcohol. The nose translates the taste as this is a Fig bomb. I do get a mint and caramel background with a boozy finish. The feel is thick and alcohol laden. Just not my style, big and bold, but just not for me.

Me and my buddies found 2 bottles of 2007 Beast at a newly-opened wine shop in Chicago, 5.99 each. No joke. Popped one open that night in celebration of their birthdays.
A - Blood red, crystalline, no head. Big ol' yeast chunks flying around all willy-nilly. Not cool. I know this is cause of age, but I am have to rate based on what I have.
S - Heavenly Belgian. Big, big raisins, plums, figs, extremely sweet malt. No alcohol.
T - So sweet, even after all this time. Intensely strong taste, plums, raisins, figs, bourbon (peculiar, but tasty), caramel, juicy fruits. No alcohol burn. Incredible what 7 years can do.
M - Thick, viscous, all the calories you need. Sticky.
O - A wonderful experience with wonderful people. Awesome.
