Where do I start?

The beer pours a thick head that laces well. The color is a hazy brown that is hard to see through.

Strong caramel notes with smoke, molasses, plum and brown sugar lending some background vocals. Best beer I ever had. Perfect score all around.

First had at the Winking Lizard in Fairlawn, Ohio

Pours a murky brown with a constant thin tan head. Smells ready with dark fruits. Tastes of plum and molasses. Slight boozy taste, but very smooth going down. One of the top 3 quads.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet Purchased in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a muddy borwn body with a medium 1" head that leaves some lacing. A few flakes of settling are present.

S- Tart green apple, belgian funk, molasses, baked bread. Slightly roasty.

T- Starts off with a burnt candied sugar and dark fruit flavor, ends with a sweet caramel, almost smokey malt note. Some booze in the background but quite tasty and sip-demanding.

M- Creamy with a medium-heavy body. Low carbonation. An easy drinker.

I was impressed with this brew and I do have to say that it lived up to the hype, minus the appearance (the flakes were my fault, but really took away from the whole experience. Next time I'll pour it easier). It was super complex and enjoyable to drink.

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass and drank at 50F.

A - Cloudy chocolate brown body, a large amount of long-lasting mocha foam. Lace ring stayed strong all the way through the glass.

S - Caramel, toffee, clove, nutty smells. Smells like a dessert, Its like no other beer I remember.

T - Sweet black tea is the dominant taste I pick up. So many other esters though, I get a little something different every time. Banana, clove and nutmeg, currants. Very complex.

M - Stunning that this is so high in alcohol, its expertly hidden. Sweet on the palate and a truly even finish. Amazing!

O - Every time I have one of these I'm ready for bed right after. A really remarkable beer, never found a better one to be had for a nightcap.

11.2oz bottle dated 270617 07:56
Pours a bronzy dark brown with a thin bubbly foam atop the ale. Aromas are boozy & rich with caramel, candi sugar, earth, spice, ripe dark fruit. Tastes are boozy & sweet with spiciness, fruit, yeast, raisin, rum, brown sugar, molasses, earth, pepper, buttery. Mouth-feel is rich & smooth with plenty of carbonation. Overall, one of the best beers in the world and spot-on for what's expected from the style.
