I poured this beer into my tulip glass. There was minimal foam that went away really quickly. This beer is extremely dark.

Off the top I get sticky, sweet aroma. You can smell toffee and coffee. This beer is extremely rich smelling (which explains how I sipped this for an 80 minute documentary).

The flavors really coat my mouth. The thick/viscous ale really stands out. You get a ton of alcohol quality to this one. The strength stands out in each sip.

I know this beer is expensive, but I think it is well worth it. This sipper will last through three pale or IPA pours. I recommend picking up two bottles and aging one. This beer will only get better with age.
