Pours dark brown with not much of a head. Smells toasted malts and coffee candy. Taste is sweet with dark fruits, fig, raisin, fruit punch, caramel and a little booze. Alcohol taste is hidden for a high abv of 12.5%. Med-full bodied. After taste is sweet with a little fruity tang. Kinda interesting, and not bad.

"A world different from the horrid Sam Adams TB. Very sugary sweet, and fairly alcoholic, but made for a pretty nice sipper. Honey, sweet malts, fudge up front and center."

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 2011. Pours a thick and hazy looking dark coppery brownish, producing a small short lived head. Vinous aroma with toasted bread, lightly roasted malts, dates and raisins. Taste is quite similar; vinous notes with a light roastyness, dried fruits and a whiff of alcohol. Very softly carbonated but pretty slick and full bodied. Feels like a mix of mead and doppelbock really.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, Domus Birrae, Roma. Shared with Slothez, Superbowl session. Poured a deep dark reddy brown with a small fading beige head. Beak had notes of dark bread, malts, brown sugar booze and dark fruits. Taste was sweet malts, dark fruits and booze. Thinnish mouthfeel with limited carbonation. Pretty forgettable overall and the inflated price made it all the more disappointing. Expected more.
