I am a terrible word smith, but as I told my wife tonight if this wasn’t $10 a bottle I would definitely drink more of it. It really is a fantastic beer.

I had this very fresh, just over 2 months since bottling. It pours dark amber with virtually no head, which is not surprising given the high ABV. The aroma is very boozy indeed which overshadows any hops (and there are truckloads of them in this beer) or even malts. The taste is similarly boozy, and you can feel the alcohol travel down to you belly. Some mild citrus aromas and flavors come through alongside some pine as an aftertaste. Full body and with minimal carbonation.
