4.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favorite beer series. Pours a dark brown like motor oil with lots of legs and lacing. Coffee colored head. Aroma is not as strong as I remembered in the 15, but still sweet with lots of malts. Taste is strong, malty with some muted hop flavor. Alcohol contents is strong but rather muted for its high content. Excellent beer!

It's funny people say this is so boozy. Anybody that can read will notice its made to be overkill. If you can handle the complexity then it's perfect. So much going on. Burnt malts in the nose with some candi sugar then the flavor just blasts your senses and the finish is like taking a shot of rum, vodka and whiskey blended together with melted Carmel taffy. If you already have hair on your chest or would like to grow some seek this out.

68? That’s all? Wow, lots of bad palates. Either that or it tastes way different in bottle than it does on draught.
Anyway, draught > Common Table. Surprisingly smooth and not totally boozy or alcohol hot considering the %. Plenty of good warm interesting flavors. I could’ve sipped on plenty of these tonight or any chili night for that matter.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Talk about overkill! Deep brown color with a thin patchy head that mostly gets pushed off to the sides. This is boozy as hell; tons of thick caramel malt to go with raisins, sweet sticky molasses, and cotton candy. It warms the body up, that’s for sure. There’s a sharp alcoholic finish that mixes with some hop bitterness. Meh. Definitely drink this one in small doses and even then it’s not very good. Age might do this some good. I believe they used 16 different malts and hops. But hey, if that’s your thing then you might like this. Not for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown (almost black) color with a moderate tan head. Don’t get a lot off the nose of this, but there is a faint smell, which is inviting. Taste is a little malty, but nothing terribly remarkable. There is a bit of an alcohol feel on the back-end, which cropped up out of nowhere.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very strong with alcohol, dark fruit, caramel, toffee, hops, and chocolate. The appearance is dark brown with a small tan head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thick. Overall a very good beer but like the others in the series it’s a bit muddled but I love the concept.

Draft at sb. Pours nearly black with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Biscuits and raisins and dates on the nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Intense boozy hot vodka rubbing alcohol twang. Chocolate raisins and biscuit mid palate mixed with the rubbing alcohol. Hot dry acetic finish.

Pretty damn delicious. I’m surprised at the negative reviews here. Granted, it is a very big beer that you have to be ready for.
Aroma of deep dark malt, coffee. Rich, thick molasses boozy taste.
