A 6oz, mandated serving at the Oliver location, in a nice little chalice. The world has not yet ended (quelle surprise), but methinks a few of these will have the same effect on me, whether tonight or tomorrow morn.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, dark bronzed amber hue, with one rather skinny finger of thinly foamy, fizzy off-white head, which leaves a low, diminishing waveform pattern of lace around the glass as it quickly fizzles away.

It smells of crisply bready caramel malt, a bit of sugary toffee, some puffy alcohol notes, a bit of musty yeast, and some middling citrus cream. The taste is very sweet caramel malt, more earthy toffee/treacle sugary notes, a hovering, but not even nearly astringent booziness, some orange creamsicle dairy fruitiness, and a softly bitter, indeterminate bitter hoppiness.

The bubbles are pretty average, but in a generally supportive way, the body a decently full weight, somewhat informed by the sugary maltiness of this behemoth, and actually smooth, free of any of the usual distractions. It finishes quite sweet, the saccharine caramel malt persisting, the musty hops dying out, and the booze still fighting way below its purported weight class.

Wow. One laid-back, awaiting the apocolypse offering - the star of show - the ABV, is well obviated, under the radar, blah blah blah, and quite inoffensive, if only in its inherent strength, as opposed to the overt boozebag I might have (sort of) been expecting. Worthy of seeking out, especially from this brewhouse, as this is the sort of thing that is expectedly well outside their comfort zone.

On tap at Brewsters Crowfoot 6oz brandy snifter a ways back, from notes

A clear amber liquid with a finger of tan foam that hangs around for a few sips leaving no lace but I don’t expect much head or lace at nearly 16%. Just a few bubbles struggling to get to the surface, liquid looks thick

S lots of caramel and ju jubes, slightly spicy with some dark bread and brandy

T much like the smell but the booze comes out a little but I’d never guess its as strong as it is, fruity notes and some spice reminds me of fruit cake just a little with some earthy wet wood as it warms

M syrupy and very sticky on the lips, crazy sticky with a fair bit of heat

O I wish this was bottled because it could use some age for sure, reminds me more of a liqueur then a beer, pretty tasty and intense

I didn’t expect to see such a monster on their menu; Brewster’s picked it up a notch as of late. Not really sure what this ones supposed to be and the info my server gave me was useless “it’s a very strong beer” gee thanks I’d never have guessed that
