This brew was served from the cask at The Blind Tiger in New York, NY. It arrived in a generic mug. The brew gave off a dark amber hue, and held a half finger tall head of egg-colored bubbles. This had poor retention, leaving only little flecks of spotted lacing around the glass. There was a mild haze throughout, but no sediment was noted. The nose was bold, with lactic sours, faint oak, and a lemon freshness. Booze was stinging, holding clove, mint, and licorice tight to its breast. The licorice spiciness came even further forward with warmth. Our first impression was that the booze was not well hidden at all, but it still had room for a nice woody flavoring. As we sipped, burning fusel booze hit hard. This was mildly cut by honey and fig sweetness, woody dryness, and a spicy mustard seed. Caramel sugars came in late, with notes of cotton candy sweetness mixing in at the peak. Soon after, ripened red cherries and mango came forward, with honey sweetness and citric hops. The finish continue with this sweetness, bringing more cherry, pineapple, and mango in to cut the now bright citric hops. The aftertaste breathed with more of those hops, Lysol cleanliness, a phenolic bite, and an enormous booziness. The body was medium, and the carbonation was low. The abv, and huge booze character made this a very warming brew. With each sip there was decent slurp, but little cream or froth. The beer was easy drinking, but was a sipper due to that initial boozy punch.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was how the sweetness nicely balanced out the heavy booziness through the middle and end of the flavoring. The spice in the nose was equally as nice, but in the end, this was just too boozy for our liking. Having had this brew from the bottle numerous times before, the cask was a nice treat, and proved a superior brew to the standard bottled format.
