Very very high gravity. Super strong. Pours like molasses. Very malty finish and semi sweet.

Bottled at Scardello tasting. Wow, that’s big but I realize it was a little bit of a gimmick to play on 16. Lot’s of hops, lots of dark malt and lots of dark fruit. Pretty boozey. I have no idea what you would do with a bomber of this other than share it amongst a dozen people. Fine though.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bomber---> snifter. Pours a dark amber black with a thick light brown head that takes quite some time to shrink with pretty good lacing. Aroma is sweet fig, heavy alcohol, light smoke, and molasses. So much going on with the taste- dark chocolate, coffee, raisins, black pepper, mild hop bitter, oak, bourbon, vanilla, and booze burn. Palate is very thick- almost chewy (which is a good thing to me) with very little carbonation. This drinks more like an impy stout mixed with a roided up barleywine.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Oily black pour with a thin khaki head that fades to nothing. Aroma is molasses, sticky dates, wood, and chocolate. Taste is dark fruits, syrup, wood, vanilla, and some coffee. Alcohol is nearly completely hidden except for the warmth. Syrupy texture with very little carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Molasses and coffee. Perhaps a bit of toffee, maple syrup, and raisin. 3/5
Appearance: Fizzy, fair, flat head. 3/5
Taste: Medium body. Creamy and alcholic texture (very hot), fizzy carbonation with a bitter aftertaste.
Overall: Not bad, need to tone down the alcohol.

On tap. Opaque chocolate with a lasting disc of cream. Nose is molasses, citrus, raisin and dark cherry. Flavors of prune, molasses, dark chocolate, peppery citrus, woody hops, cherry brandy, light char and smoke. ABV is noted, but not like you would think in a 16% brew. Heavy body has light-medium carbonation and is slightly sticky, but a pretty easy drinker compared to others of the same vitality.

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.
