COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

This has a nice balance of flavors, but as others have commented, it does have a bitterness to it. Itís probably the heartiest beer youíll find it most grocery stores.

I wasnít ready for this. You donít drink this beer. It drinks you...I guess. Pours a smooth amber color with an off white head. Upon first taste I had to kneel down and submit to its will. This beer is like going to bed with a malty goddess and letting her play with your poop area.

Pours a dark amberish color. Aroma and taste are dried fruits, caramel, and malts.

Alright, all the macho shit aside, this is a really good beer. Fuck all the not worthy shit, just drink this beer and donít be a little bitch. Itís a really big beer that does command respect. Thereís a lot going on here. Lots of sweetness, vanilla, bourbon, fucking woodiness just epic aromas. This beer is not balanced and does not try to be. Iíve heard a lot of people who try to talk this beer down and say itís overrated and whatever, but Itís null and void. If you want to venture down this road and try this behemoth of a beer, do it, but be prepared for massive amounts of self guilt, and unworthiness ;)

adasko (887) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 24, 2015
W aromacie lekko karmelowy, słodowy. Barwa jasno miedziana, niska ale bardzo trwała piana, świetny lacing. W smaku spora goryczka, duża podbudowa słodowa. Bardzo gładkie, bardzo aksamitne, delikatnie za bardzo nagazowane.

Zakoon (190) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2015
650ml enjoyed @ my vacation apartment. Pours clear dark amber with a one finger off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, earthy, wood, caramel, pine and hoppy. Flavour is medium sweet and surprisingly bitter. Full bodied, thick texture, average carbonation. Finish is resinous and malty.

KoRoBeNiKi (63) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Malt and smoke smell with a bit of wood in the back, hint of coffee and bitterness. Red/orange with a bit of amber. Amber color. A bit of sweetness but it is mostly bitter. Needs a bit more sweetness.

DrGD (103) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle. Beautiful appearance of dark amber colour with white foam. Aromas of caramel, malts, hops, hint of wood. Taste: rich and complex, caramel, vanilla, lots of hops, citrus fruits. Great balance. Medium carbonation. A beast of a beer!

Dervock (556) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle - pours dark ruby amber with a lacy white head. Lots of sweet caramel and toffee malt with a subtle hint of hops. Taste is not nicely balanced not over powered by either the malt or hops. finish is dry but not overly bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy.

Malrider69 (77) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
Pours a dark amber colour with a thick white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is of malt and the beer has a thick, syrupy consistency. There is a strong taste of malt and a moderately bitter taste that is long lasting on the palate. This is a complex, good quality beer, the only downside being that it is very expensive.
