Bottle. Poured a dark, purplish brown color with a nice brown head and strong lacing. Aroma was very pleasant, with a nice blend of roasted malts and oak. Mouthfeel was okay. Flavor wasn’t as bold as I had expected, especially for the ABV. Hints of chocolate, oak, alcohol, toffee, and coffee. This was a nice big offering from New Holland.

Sampled from a 12 oz. bottle at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured an opaque black with a tan head and lacing. Taste of chocolate milk, vanilla and very subtle roasted malts. Average carbonation, full body, oily texture.

Near black with a beige head. Aroma is strong sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. Taste follows the nose and is very easy to drink. Alcohol is completely hidden. Slick full body. Really nice beer.

Wow. The first sip is mind-blowing. Then it’s still excellent. Bourbon, vanilla combine to almost be a coconut flavor.

A hot beer without the complexity to mask it. Palate is very light but with the high abv kick. Would not buy again

Una de las revelaciones del Barcelona Beer Festival. Tienes el embeleso del dulzor, derivado de la lactosa, que te hace olvidar que estás ante una bestia alcohólica. Podría estar bebiendo más, lo cual es una estupenda señal.
