Smells of malts and alcohol. Taste is along the same lines malt, alcohol but with much more of a malt backbone than expected. It was a bit on the bitter side but not anymore than other beers I've had. It's expensive but something to experience.

Head was thin while pouring, nonexistent after warming up to a drinkable temp. appeared dark orange in natural light and light brown indoors, transparent and filtered. Aroma came off clean and straight up bitter. Initial sip was sweet, boozy, layered and heavy. 2nd sip I got more evergreen, pine and bitter hops. finishing with a thick, sweet caramel stickiness. truly a one of a kind.

L: A hazy dark orange with a multitude of particulates visible in the beer. A moderate amount of tan head.

L: It pours copper amber with a light haze under a 3" off white to cream colored foam cap with fair retention. Light particulates suspended in the beer are buffeted up and down by streams of bubbles slowly rising to the surface

S: an initial umami whiff of Worcester sauce blows off. Alcohol, hop aromas, malt, traces of fruit, a slight tartness and citrus follow

T: rich malt flavors, mildly sweet alcohol, dark dried fruit, a hint of tart and a big assertive bitterness

F: medium full body, medium low carbonation and alcohol warming that approaches hot but is not harsh

O: a big, full flavored potent beer that has achieved cult status
