4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A huge beer that is big in ABV and comes through, the malt really carries through the palette, I enjoyed this beer and is a must try for all.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz. bottle. Deep dark brown. Aroma is chocolate, brown sugar, caramel and cherries.
Body is medium yet sticky, syrupy sweet. Holy Christ this is sweet. Flavor is booze soaked raisins, stupid crazy, sugar. 17 malts is maybe to much?? Cloying....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
dark black, some brown edges. no head on the pour straight from the bomber. Aroma is boozy, chocolate, fudge, tobacco, maple syrup. Very dense bubbles, thick, syrupy. There’s a ton of flavor here. really hard to describe each flavor here. Syrup, sweet, chocolate, maple. intense

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rendu à cette étape de la soirée, je n’ai pas réalisé que ce monstre tirait un gros 17% d’alcool. Au nez et en bouche, beaucoup de malts épais et de fruits foncés. Ça sent le porto et ça goûte aussi la mélasse, le rôti et les fruits liquoreux. L’alcool arrive maintenant et me pince la langue. La finale assez chaude arrive à atténuer l’aspect lourd des malts. Pas mauvais. Quand même un drôle de choix de ma part.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is insane. Crazy strong with deep milk chocolate, coffee, and prune notes. Pours a rich dark brown with a short head.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A lot of marketing for this beer. I couldn’t find 17 hops or 17 malts or even 17 degrees alcohol. It is not a bad beer, but it is not something special. A lot of figs and dark fruit aroma and flavor, alcohol is well hidden. It has a medium body, and it it is very sweet. It was complex, not.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bomber into tulip. Pours black with little head. Heavy carbonation that needs to be toned down through aging. Flavor is complex and varied. The hops announce themselves, but never get out of hand. Same with the malts. there is a nice balance there. for being 17%, the alcohol masking is excellent. Easy drinking and smooth.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Jet black with tan head
Aroma: Super malty with notes of port.
Taste: Mutliple layers of flavors. Tons of sweetness upfront with toffee, mocha and star anise. Oaky whisky on the finish. Incredibly well masked alcohol level. Ten percent but 17% now way
Overall: A must try treat I look forward to getting every year.
