Bought a couple of six packs during the 2016Christmas break when it was released at the Bell's store in Kalamazoo Michigan. Was told to sit on it. Compared to the ratings I see here, I'd say this strong ale has definitely matured well. Look forward to next year.

Muddy brown-red with a soft khaki head quickly dying to a thin film and ring.

Smell is raisin, brown sugar, maple, grape, root beer, ginger, and pine. I think I said "this is so fucking weird" 5 times while smelling it.

Taste is really dark gingerbread cookies--too much molasses, just way too much. Some cocoa and ginger annihilate the tongue as well. The extreme and rich potency of these flavors twists my palate to an unpleasant extreme.

Thick, frothy, super dry to ashy, with a little burn on way down. Ew.
