look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Murky deep brown glass drops the short flash of a head without much pretense. I may see a trace of the alcoholic vapor drifting off of it.

Smell: Heady alcohol on a firmly toasted grain base. Comes across as a bit like a Belgian Quad with a candy sugar beet fuel source.

Taste: Hot. Jet fuel alcohol blazes quickly, there is a lot of grain left over after the yeast topped out, so there is a residual sweetness, with a dark fruit jam flash before everything burns away.

Mouthfeel: Numbing, black crisp dry, viscous.

Overall: I may have jumped the gun with this one. It seems an excellent candidate for aging I'll get a large water back and nurse this through the night and enjoy, but I'm worried about having it near an open flame.

Serving type: bottle
