Imposing bottle, whose central image is that of a very serious looking reverend who seems to gaze straight into your soul as though to ascertain your worthiness for the elixir contained within. This aint no kum-by-yah singing, lets all hold hands kinda priest. This guy is straight up, old school, latin-speaking hell-and-damnation, and the beer hes guarding is the pure demon-melting holy water stuff. Brimstone color with just the thinnest of thin heads. The aroma is a beguiling blend of candi sugar, sweet malt, and Belgian yeast. Soul-cleansing spiciness right from the start, a bit peppery in flavor, blends with candi sugar sweetness and yields gently into a deep fruit malt flavor. Nice hop bite at the end. Full in body, but well-carbonated enough to go down fairly smoothly. No spices listed on the label hard to believe there arent any added. Good stuff overall, the high alcohol content is hidden fairly well. Just watch the quantity of your consumption or youll be speaking in tongues in no time.
