Had the batch 009 from 2014 on Sunday, March 9, 2014. Also was able to get two bottles on Thursday March 6, but have not opened them. For a beer that is supposed to be 20-22% ABV, I was amazed that it lacked an alcohol taste or smell. The mouthfeel is very light--like a port wine. Has a slightly sweet taste, but by no means sickening. Served by Rapp himself at the Rapp tasting room, poured from a bottle. This beer is supposed to be served at room temperature, per direction on the bottle and by the brewer. I wonder how much this affects my thoughts on it--never really had a beer served at room temperature. Overall I think this beer is really something special. I've never had a beer this high in ABV that did not make me wince when I took a smell or taste. This tastes like it is in the 9-10% range maybe.

This beer is crazy good, it poured out with very little to look at other than it's brown color even with an aggressive pour. The smell of the beer is full of dark fruits and dark sugary notes. The taste has just about the same types of flavors you'd expect from the aroma. The feel is more like a port wine, sort of like Sam Adams Utopias only a lot better in my opinion. Overall this was a real treat.

Thanks for opening this with me, azdback!

A truly incredible, rich, sticky, decadent creation. This reminds me of a nice port wine in a lot of ways, though without the fruity grape character. Huge amounts of molasses, raisin, plum, fig, and mild wood. The aroma and flavor have big notes of chocolate as well. Nice vanilla notes throughout. Alcohol is present, but it's complementary in a sipping dessert beer lik this one. I would love to have the opportunity to try this again. Fantastic stuff!
