Pours a deep dark brown with lots of chunky sediment. Head was about an inch, but disappeared pretty quickly. Smell is a nice blend of malt, clove, and fruit. Heavy booze on the finish. Taste is bold grains, with toffee and caramel. Lots of fruit on this one, including pear, grape, and banana. Not expecting how sweet the flavor would be. Does a good job masking the alcohol. Mouthfeel is very heavy, with a creamy texture and medium carbonation. Alcohol leaves a lingering warm feeling. For any dark beer advocates, this is a great option. Be warned however, this beer is a beast.

L: Pours a murky brown with a lot of chunks, half finger head
S: Banana, cloves, chalky, vanilla, half baked bread, sweet malt
T: A hefewiezen on steroids, you can really taste the alchohl in this one, packs a sweet malty boozy punch, aftertaste is clean
F: Very heavy, quite thick, low carbonation, creamy
O: A very heavy beer that would be good with a large steak, worth a try

11.2oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep tawny red color with a one-finger foamy white head that retains a while before settling to a ring around the edge

S- big malty aroma with strong notes of caramel, fig, raisin, prune, fruit cake, brown bread & brown sugar. Spicy yeast gives some clove and banana undertones, along with toasted wheat, also some booze on the close

T- flavor follows the aroma, big malt bomb with huge notes of caramel/toffee, brown sugar & molasses. Intense dark fruits come out in the mid-palate, with flavors of raisin, fig & date. The finish brings some spicy yeast that yields notes of clove and banana esters, some alcohol on the finish with more sweet malt on the linger

M- thick an viscous body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a thick filmy finish, lingers of alcohol

O- pretty much everything do you look for in a high alcohol malt bomb. A world-class beer that is always good to revisit once in a wile

Such an outstanding big beer. So many similarities to a Trappist quad but different yeast strain.

Light nutty brown color, sweet honey smell and a very full honey and malted taste

Spicy and estery in both aroma and flavour. More grains in the smell but all in all it's mostly clove, booze and banana. This is a good beer, quite a sipper, but look out because this one hits you hard time.
The taste is very similar than the not-frozen version

Looks pretty vomity in the glass--brown, with some sediment. Light head that disappears very quickly, turbid. But smells and tastes like magic: slight sour, yeasty, doughy, wheaty, fruity, chocolate, clove, banana, cherries, plums/raisins. Brown sugar? One could go on. Taste is much the same, with a pretty fiery ABV kick that's only marginally successful at getting you to slow down your drinking speed. Middle of the road carbonation, body not too thick, given the circumstances.

World-class. Just don't fool yourself into thinking you can do the entire 500mL bottle yourself in one go.
