Perhaps the best beer I've ever had in my life.

A step above some of the big hitters like BCBBW.

Sampler out of bottle.

A big thanks to MIke for sharing.

Vintage 2014.

Pours translucent rust, dark copper with a khaki head that eventually disappears completely leaving no lace. The smell is of stone fruit, caramel and cognac. The taste is sweet and complex with caramel, toffee, vanilla, dates, burnt sugar, raisin and toasted bread. Full texture with low carbonation. Admittedly sweet but, so many different flavors blending together in glorious harmony. Instantly one of my all-time favorites.

Batch 4

L: pours very thick and dark brown syrup. A film of head for a brief moment then fades to a tiny ring about the glass.
S: big sweet cognac, caramel covered raisins, there is some slight bitterness. Overall it smells big, boozy and sweet.
T: wow! Zero alcohol, wow. Wasn't expecting that. Huge and awesome flavors of sweet raisins, grapes, with nice caramel sweetness that lingers well past the drink.
F: The sweetness completely coats my mouth and lips. I just keep tasting it long after the drink. So smooth, very thick.
O: wow! Blown away!!
