An epic brew from Achilles, a red-brown rich and malty masterpiece with just a dash of hoppy bitterness for balance.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. I think this is the name of a bowie song haha. Pours a hazy dark bread? (scribble) color with a medium soapy head and good lacing. Apple cinnamon quaker oatmeal with a sweet candi sugar and boozy taste. Nothing like being drunk at breakfast. Medium mouthfeel and medium to long finish.
