A: Thick, dense head that slowly melts into a thin layer of light brown/tan foam around the perimter of the glass. The "melts" is apt, for with a beer of this thickness, processes must be described as slow, almost geologic in their movement. The beer is a very dark brown away from the light, turning an orange-amber when held to the bulb. A surprising amount of carbonation is visible, despite the murkiness and anticipated thickness of this brew.
S: Strong, syrupy, brown sugar scents abound, along with traces of plums and dark cherries. No detectable yeast or hop presence.
T: Thick, molasses-style sweetness upfront with synergizing flavors of plum and rum. The alcohol presents itself midway through and strengthens until the finish. Lingering sweetness in the aftertaste that does not come across as cloying.
M: Thick body, little carbonation, smooth through and through.
D: The density of the elements and the high alcohol content make this an excellent sipping beer for the winter months. A simple creation, when one considers its core tastes of brown sugar, rum, and plums. Yet its depth is its strength, each element heightened to an elegant extremity. Excellent for drinking while discussing seminal issues with good friends or pondering works of art alone in the semi-darkness.

A: Dark maple syrup brown, cloudy, a finger of light beige head, opaque so can’t see any carbonation.
S: Very weizen like, dark fruits like dates and figs, ripe bananas, floral, black pepper, ripe banana peels, a slight fermented fruit.
T: Big weizen flavours, dark fruit, dates and figs, ripe bananas, tannic, sweet, big alcohol flavours, little bitterness. Brown sugar.
M: Thick, weighty syrupy body, medium high fine bubbled carbonation.
O: My first in this style. A strong beer that’s well done and a sipper, but very drinkable. Complex good flavours, reminiscent of a weizen.
