Bottle. Clear reddish brown color, lots of foam but it dissipates fairly quickly, medium lacing. Candi sugar aroma, molasses, faint hops. Taste is similar with some anise, tobacco, and alcohol. Hop bitterness comes out more in the finish. Quite good overall but comes up short against the best Belgian quads.

[ Bottle ][ 750mL ][ Jank Bottle Shop Solana Beach ][ $17 ][ Crooked Stave Globe ][ 7.11.14 ]
>> Pours clear sepia core, deep red edges. Massive creamy yellow head. Nose is chocolate covered strawberry, vanilla, slight metallic, white chocolate mousse. Taste is dusty, metallic, papery, milk chocolate, rum soaked strawberry, milk chocolate covered strawberry. Rum cake finish. It’s pretty damn good, just not my style: sweet, red, high boost. Cleans up as it warms, good stuff.

Yum. Deep, cooked caramel and raisin aroma. Rich flavors, very strong. I’m enjoying it with Stilton and marcona almonds. Fuck, I’m turning into Charles Finkel. Great beer, wait ’till it’s gone to eat the stinkin’ cheese.
