The Beast is a seducer - accomodating, complicated, powerful, dark and created to last the ages. Beyond this, itís futile to attempt to describe Him. He will unveil Himself differently to each of His followers. The mark is in His constitution. Brewed with two-row malted barley, honey malt, and imported Belgian specialty grains (aromatic, pale wheat, roasted wheat, and Special B), hops (Magnum, Galena, Saaz, Hallertau, Tettnang, and Hersbrucker), brewing sugars (raisins, dates, blackstrap molasses, alfalfa honey, turbinado, and dark Belgian candy sugar), water, Belgian yeast and another hellion of a yeast strain.OG: 1.138

Vintage 2007. Anyone interested, send me a message. Great year. Opened 6 years later. The taste is bitter and malty followed by sourness from dates, figs, and raisins. A sweet finish. The alcohol doesnít come through until the end, where it warms the throat. The aging is definitely present. Great beer, not many left from 07í.

Served on tap at Hops and Pies. Hazy Amber color with a white head. Sweet plum floral aroma. Crazy weird resin sweet malt hops. Tastes like a science experiment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is caramel, booze, butterscotch, hot, sweet malt, spices, clove. Appearance is hazy reddish brown, light light tan head. Taste is caramel, booze, hot, apples, woody, dry, spices. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, woody booze aftertaste. Overall, this is definitely a sipper, and almost offensively boozy.

TimE (5046) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2016
ery malty. Lots of cherries, wood, orange candy, phenolic, boozy, dark fruit, dried strawberries some type of milk chocolate. Bready. Very full body. Big and bad. More hops than expected for the style. For 18% itís fucking awesome. So well balanced.

Have had many vintages of this and it is always so booze. Pours out dark amber a small tan head. Nose is booze big rich pit fruit malts lots of sweetness. Taste is more of the heat heavy malts and tons of ripe pit fruit sweetness.

Scored an 8/2014 release at Friar Tuck. Strong cocoa aroma with candy sweetness, oak and booze. Odd medium brown color, tiny off white head. Taste follows the aroma - dark chocolate, oak and candy with a sweet and boozy aftertaste. Good thick low carb palate. This was great. Highly recommend.

GTAEgeek (1928) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Sample of a 2004 vintage bottle at the Avery 23rd Anniversary Party. Cloudy reddish brown pour, with a small, light tan head. Nose of caramel, peanut, butterscotch, peat, a bit musty, and cloves. Very sweet, with light bitterness. Very heavy body, syrupy, grainy, and thick. This is a seriously intense and delicious beer. Strong and very deep, but smooth and focused.

2014 Bottle - Poured red like a V-8 but settled into a nice rusty red. Nice aroma of plums, raisins and dried fruit. A sweet taste of caramel and dried fruits. Very smooth! Iím sorry that I only have access to one.
