2015 Vintage, complete with Utopias glass set. The share to be at!

Deep sienna brown, murky, with no head. A beautiful whiskey toned pour, but with that haze you know you’re still getting a beer.

A huge, potent nose. Dark fruit hits the senses first, very sweet at first. After a fleeting moment, you get a blacksmith’s hammer fist of oak, booze, and tobacco. The hints of peat and charred oak compliment a nose hair burn.

I was most surprised at how damn smooth this was. More of that pleasant Oakley barrel first. Bourbon and sweet syrup fight for the spotlight, and dark fruit plays it’s part where necessary. The interplay of elements make this so much more than an extreme beer that is just looking to push the envelope on ABV. This beast has so much more to offer.

It has a Medium body, slightly lighter in weight than expected. No carb (as expected), but again... incredibly smooth. Sticky, boozy, warm. My white whale slain.
