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.
