A: Dark brown with a thick tan head with good detentions. Left a big sticky foam mess on the glass. Well carbonated. Thick muddy haze.

S: Big sweet alcohol. Molasses, honey brown sugar. Soft leather. Light toasted oak. More alcohol.

T: At first taste the musky yeastiness was too much with a huge alcohol kick. The second and third sips cut through straight to the big roasted grain. There's still a big alcohol flavor but a big rich woodiness and caramel sweetness stands up to it. The big roasted sweet grain really stands up well to the booze, but not so much to overpower. To round it out a tanginess yet again balances out the big sweet grain and a wet aged pipe tobacco and wet dried prunes and figs. The beer finishes tangy and carbonic from the good carbonation with a mild graphite finish. A small yeasty sweetness finishes long but not overpowering with a bit of dry crackers. Truly a great miriad of flavor.

M: Big beer, but not as heavy as I would have guessed. Finishes light with a mild sweet and yeastiness that finishes salty and slightly dry.

O: Not the prettiest beer, but what an amazing flavor profile! It has a huge earthiness, but still a ice light crisp finish that balances out the big flavors so well. I could really go for a lighter version of this so I could drink more without getting obliterated from tho high 10.5% alcohol.
