Pre-DLD bottle share in 2014. I’m not sure why everyone rating this is saying its clear copper or amber, this thing pours deep opaque brown with no head. Aroma of booze, dried fruit, caramel, and alcohol soaked cherries. Flavor is strong alcohol at first and transitions into a heavy citrus and roasted malt finish. Eh.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Clear amber body with a tiny head. It’s almost like a barley wine, lots of dark fruit like raisins, dates, figs. Light citrus. Flavour is dark fruit, raisins, figs, dates, licorice notes, burnt caramel, booze. I really love the nose, and it gets better the warmer it gets.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 8/20
(backlog) Close to a 1oz pour from a bottle. Orange pour with a scant amount of head. Very dank hop aromas. Flavor is intense, closer to a hop liquor than a hopped up beer.

there is no foam or carbon dioxide in the beer. the smell is strongly hoppy, malty and strong. the taste is not surprisingly very strong alcohol, but has strong hop flavor and a sweetness which dampens shock of alcohol. They classifies itself as a Quadrupel ipa. a truly extreme beer experience. drinking only a few cl. the most surprising enough that it tastes like beer, not spirits hops
