Pours a deep golden honey with garnet highlights. One inch head dissipates quickly with a stratospheric top and foam hugs the ridge.

Booze stands front in the nose followed by a toffee/caramel with toasted nut and sweet malt aroma. Some allspice.

Again booze upfront on the taste buds balanced nicely with the malt and mild hop. Mellow burnt toffee.

Very mellow brew that finishes smoooth! I would compare a likeness of this to a Firestone Double DBA.

Overall nicely done. One needs to like a bit-o-booze and expect it in this quaff. Again, nicely balanced and not one characteristics outweighs the other. Only wish it were in my area as I would definitely git mo' of the Weee William.

500ml bottle served in a large beer mug.

L - murky rust color with a thin beige head that just went away in a few minutes.

S - sweet toffee and burnt brown sugar.

T - sweetness upfront with the alcohol making itself known finishing with some light bitterness.

F - medium bodied, mild carbonation with some alcohol warming.

O - good example of the style.
