32oz growler from the brewery.

Two fingers of off-white head, excellent head retention. Hazed amber hue, bubbly. Very aromatic; alcohol, toffee, fresh baguette, faint vanilla, white pepper, wood, and dragon fruit. Very smooth, thick medium body, creamy and a bit slick. Sweet, bready, slightly buttery, nutty yeast, prickly alcohol, very malty, pears, balanced hoppiness, big warmth, ripe dates, finishes semi-sweet with a lingering booziness.

Big and tasty, very bold but still very much a joy to sip. A beer this size needs a stinky cheese to pair with.
