If I heard correctly, this was the last beer ever brewed by the man himself, Dick Young. Kinda sad to think he's gone, but he left behind a legacy of great beer including this imperial version of Dick's flagship Danger Ale. Beyond the black humor in the risqué name is a strong headless ale that tastes like a copacetic merger of fig and molasses. The color blends plum red with brown and the smell and taste suggest a fine port wine. The alcohol is successfully concealed.

A fitting memorial ale from a respected pioneer in the Northwest craft beer scene. Get it while you can, if you can.
