Kuhnhenn - man, I really had no idea. What is going on up there in Michigan? So many fantastic breweries!

Fourth Dementia pours a deep, oily brown-black - it looks incredibly viscous and syrupy, while the smell is all warm, malty sweetness.

I gave this some time to reach room temperature. On a first taste, the sweetness really took me by surprise. It's incredibly rich and cloying, almost syrupy - excellent texture, with a delicious toffee caramel marshmallow taste to it. Again, very, very sweet - but it's so smooth, and disguises the ABV so well, that the sweetness doesn't bother. Also slightly surprising - I'm accustomed to some sort of unpleasant aftertaste with a beer that is so incredibly sweet... but 4th D is exceptionally clean.

This is a fantastic beer. I'm generally one to avoid old ales - but this particular bottle was part of an LIF from FlintB, so I couldn't say no! Tremendously delicious bottle - thanks again, FlintB!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Shared with Ryan.

Pours a brown muddy translucent but lightly cloudy body with a white head.

Aromas of toffee, buttscotch, caramel, old malt, bourbon.

Taste matches the nose with tons of caramel and toffee, dark fruits and figs, lightly toasty on the finish. Can't tell it's 13%.
