You need to drink this beer knowing hat it's probably close to twice as high of an ABV as your typical imperial. Knowing that, you go into it knowing that there will be an alcohol presence in every sip. I drank this one over the course of about an hour or more and by the end as it warmed it mellowed quite a bit. I enjoyed this one for sure.

2014 vintage, poured into a tulip glass

A- pours a clear amber color with a small creamy and foamy white head that eventually reduces to a small layer skimming the top, no lace left behind

S- lots of booze on the aroma, the hop aroma is there with notes of pine & citrus, but the alcohol gives a sweet aroma that mixes with malty undertones

T- taste similarities are very similar to a barleywine up front, sweet alcohol dominates up front, with notes of citrus hop and pine kicking in mid-palate, more citrus continues to the finish with more booze

M- heavy bodied with low carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel with a smooth and silky warming finish, lingers of alcohol

O- this is definitely a unique beer that is in a category of its own.
