4.15/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance is gold with a frothy off-white head, creamy, solid lace.

Smell is intense, there's lots of sugars, earth, herbal, some coco (weird!), and herbal.

Taste is intense but notably smooth. 15.5% seems daunting! But the taste is not. Like the herbal notes, I assume the honey helps it ferment strong and smooth, more of a braggot I assume. Very well done.

Mouthfeel is slippery, eerily soft, light; Saharan dryness.

Drinkability is impressively strong. Honestly, the best, most drinkable of the strong beers I've had; by a wide margin; wine like.
