COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We like those guys at Three Lloyds. They don’t give a fuck. This beer is a work of fiction. Any similarities to any other beer, living or dead, are purely coincidental. We thought we already had a pretty good lineup of dark, syrupy giants, so we decided to make a light, syrupy giant. This imperial adjunct wine is a backbreaking double mash beer loaded with a totally unreasonable amount of oats and a knuckle sandwich of corn. The smoke note is extremely subtle behind the huge grain bill, and the massive additions of German Magnum hops are designed to obliterate your big dumb face. A long aging was allowed on a blend of American and French oak to add distinct spice, vanilla, and oak flavors. Forget your previous Satanic allegiances. Bow down before your Dork Lard!

TheJestersBeer (2039) - SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2014
Tap @ Port Street Alehouse, Mancs. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber, with a thin white head. Malty, spicy aroma, caramel, apricot, nuts, orange. Semi-sweet, full bodied, mid to high bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty, sugary taste, caramel, dried fruits, apricot, walnut, marzipan,oxidized apples. A tiny bit rough, the alcohol burns through a bit.(2014-03-12)

Nocturne (775) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Hazy orange with a thin blonde cap. Sugary sweet caramel, vanilla, oaky. Tangy, resinous and sticky all through. Long warmth to the end. Better than I’d expect for something so adjunct heavy, but not something I’d seek out again in a hurry.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2014
Tap @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dominated by it’s demanding alcohol level and some sweetness. Brown sugar and butterscotch caramel with some slight syrup-bread on the backend.

Draft @ Hoppy Loft. Yeah, Ia m glad the beer is a work of fiction. Orangée sur un col crémeux blanc cassé. Arôme est malté présentant un bouquet sucré bcp trop conséquent avec un bouquet de triple et des effluves de fruits pourris fermentés. Note une certaine épaisseur, même au nez, venant de l’avoine qui ne joue pas en faveur de cette bière. Palais est épais, ici aussi la marque de l’avoine, fruité tropical de mangue, limoncello et autres agrumes avec une pointe d’épice. Pointe de sève, houblonné légèrement huileux. Caractère pâle avec pas mal de marque venant de la levure. Ici aussi, je peine à trouver la côté mûrissage en fût, si ce n’est au travers de ce côté légèrement épicé.

thebeertourist (4781) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
Tap at BeerTemple. Amber, steady offwhite head. Fruity and biscuity nose. Sweet, oranges, hints of marcipane, yet bitter ending. Quite original.

nimbleprop (4811) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2013
32oz growler I filled at Superstar Beverage on Long Island. Pours a copper amber with some thin off white head. Nose is not at all appetizing, some smoke, some corn, raisin, fake cheeze, artificial sweetness, booze. Flavor is harsh, unfermented sugar, almost like an iced tea which had 25 Splenda packets poured in, booze, cheap rum blended with cheaper whiskey. Harsh finish. I would not go back to this again.
