Extremely dangerous. Easily the best of the three NYFRB versions, the medicinal taste found in the 5.9% version is gone. Very dark with minimal head. This is extremely sweet, similar to other 'dessert' beers such as Southern Tier's Creme Brulee, with no hint of alcohol present whatsoever. A great sipper. As others have mentioned, I wish it were more available.

Dangerous!!! This is the best tasting, NYFRB in comparison with the two lesser ABVs. Everything is balanced correctl. Unlike the lessers, this one it's not too sugary. I wish the more readily available ones tasted like this.
