2016 version listed at 12.5% bit they told me first few kegs probably higher abv for some freezing reason. Anyways I wanted this brew for years and made it out to brewery on release day on coldest day in decades which seems quite appropriate. Ruby pour minimal head. Nose is dark fruit light malt and wheat. Tastes of plums, malt, light licorice, dried leaves, cherry, hint of brandy, and grapes. Smooth palate only hint of the huge abv. Drinking litre of this amd 3/4 through not feeling booze yet we will see in morning.

Put on for the Ratebeer crew during beer week. Pour is a pitch black color with small head, medium lacing. Aromas and taste of apple, belgian spice, coriander, medicine, brown sugar, quad notes, roasty, little bit of toffee hidden. Taste is more of the same, with very flavorful wheat. Glad i got to try this rare beer.

served in a goblet at barcade bc spuyten sucks. moving on... appear dank golden clear. smells rich golden malt with some of those bock esters, spice, clove, banano. taste is just rich smooth malt with a moderate spice ester presence. the feel of this brew is exceptional. overall this was the right choice over the bear republic BABW. NJ FTW!

FROTHINGSLOSH (6738) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured almost black with a medium sized beige head that faded quickly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet raspberry jam, sugar and touches of cocoa, wood and tobacco. The flavor was sweet raspberry jam, sugar, wood, molasses and a hint of smoke. Long finish. Fairly full bodied. Nice.

Pours deep root beer brown with thin, fine, nitro brown head. Lighter bodied than anticipated. Aroma/Flavor are some roast, grain, prune. just a touch of clean hop bitterness. Lovely with an indescribable wheat sweet grain.
