Light fizzy head fades semi quickly with no real lacing, dark murky rosy, maroon brown color.
Nose loaded with darker malts, brown sugar galore, light booze, light nutty malt aromas, hint of booze and esters with touch off fruit, caramel and molasses, then some light earthy herbal bittering hops.
Taste is loaded with darker malts, rich creamy crystal malts, hint of creamy malt, then sweetness with brown sugar, molasses, caramel, candi sugar even, bringing a big booze kick and some esters, then fruit with dark raisin and fig, almost feusel alcohol that starts to burn a little. Bitter hops cut through eventually with a big bittering component and some earthy herbal chewy hops. finish brings more bitter chewy spicy hops that start to get astringent, sticky sweet dark malts and brown sugar molasses combo, and hint of caramel and dark malts lingering as well.
Mouth is a bit heavier bodied, decent carb and a big warming tingly almost feusel booze kick.
Overall not bad, a bit too heavy for its own good, but decent with nice malts and sweeteners, the hops are interesting but a bit much, and sticky syrupy malt flavors a bit too much. Then again as its supposed to be much bigger than double bag I think they pretty much achieved that.

This bottle definitely has at least a year on it.
A-Pours a slightly murky brown color. This mass of bubbles for a head. Body has some particulate swirling and sinking within it.
S-Sweet and richly malty. Caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Some dark fruit. Zero hop presence. Some alcohol.
T-Even with some age on it, this beer is too hot. It's rather high in alcohol but the booze is not well integrated. All the stuff in the nose is here, without much else to add.
M-A bit syrupy. Hot. Not cloying but it's within reach. Warms the cheeks for sure.
O/D-Nigger is not better. Double Bag was one of my first intros to craft. I still enjoy it somewhat. This one doesn't have the same magic as it's little brother.
