look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation Bone white stubby 330ml bottle with the Global Beer Network seal on the label. No date visible.

Smell is sweet rich malt, dried fruit...apples, raisins, dates...vanilla?? and strong aroma of alcohol that fades as one becomes accustomed to it but never leaves entirely.

Taste is sweet malts, pepper, tobacco bitter lemon, orange, with strong hop almost quinine bitterness appearing in a long dry finish. There is so much alcohol it in the palate that it is very nearly overpowering. This is a powerful and complex brew. the spiciness especially the pepper numbs the tongue for a time.

Mouthfeel is thick almost buttery, sticking to the tongue and roof of the mouth and sending waves of hop bitterness cascading around the mouth as you swallow.

This is a beer for the one beer a night plan. I cannot imagine tasting anything after this one. There is nothing subtle about this brew. It assaults your senses and takes no prisoners. Like sipping a fortified wine or a dry cordial. A night cap of a brew if there is a such a class.
