2.6/5  rDev n/a
look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Sampled at the brewery.
Deep but clear rusty red/orange. Small lacy head. Looks beautiful and intense.

Nose is straight up grain alcohol. Impressive, but doesn't make you want to drink it. Reminiscent of Chinese baijou.

Taste is like a big malt liquor. Alcohol and malts. Strong grain alcohol, not balanced.

Mouthfeel is decent. Not super drinkable.
