A - Rootbeer or cola brown with absolutely no head. A slight haze of whispy smoke covers the top of the brew. This is purple when held to candlelight and the hoards of sea monkeies dancing in the brew become visible.
S - Wonderous aroma of chocolate cake, tootsie rolls, LIttle Debbie snack cakes, yeasty chocolate coated donuts, some gentle grapey vinous scents, and light touches of leafy hops.
T - German chocolate cake, loads of yeast, and a humongous alcohol presence dominate the palate. Behind the chocolatey malt and strong spiced rum alcohol flavors, a gentle hop bitterness adds to a dry finish.
M - Super thick and gritty with a huge alcohol kick in the teeth. This has as much in common with a fine scotch as it does beer.
D - The gargantuan alcohol burn makes this a slow sipper, not a sessioner, but I will return to this once in a while when there is time to slowly enjoy this fine brew. I drank this by candlelight when our power was knocked out one snowstormy night and this was the perfect warming beverage for the occasion.

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.
