on bottle and tap within the same week. More carbonated on tap, not to detriment of beer - on bottle killed head. On bottle the bottle may have sat a while, but not to detriment of beer. Picked up at Pipe and Pint in Greensboro.
Very clear with meadlike sweetness and alcohol to nose. Thick mouthfeel, malty toward slight syrup. Alcohol is pleasant and diversity of malt flavors impressive. Smooth, drinkable whiskey type finish.
I could easily drink myself to death with this drinkability to alcohol ratio and never notice it.

On tap at PIB 2015, pours a deep dark brown with a reddish brown and a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted nuts, dark fruits, and toffee. Flavour is quite sweet, with sugary sweet candied sugar, cotton candy and alcohol. Not too boozy for being 14%. Nicely constructed but rather extreme for drinking in more than tiny samples. Good stuff.

Refrigerated brown bottle poured into a glass. Clear golden with very small white head. Aroma is light oak, medium body, low carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is rich barrel, mineral malt, and booze heat.

Bottle, 33cl. Clear copper with the most minimal of heads. Musky aroma of caramel, leather, spices, alcohol. Medium to robust bodied with moderate to flat carbonation. Intensely sweet, like licor, with a fiery dried fruit and alcohol character and a dense a bitter finish. Very rich and pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden yellow from bottle, thin head, without any hint of the assault to follow. Aroma is malty, not overpowering. Taste is dominantly sweet and alcoholic, notes of anise, figs, and did I mention alcohol. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall a strange brew, may appeal to some as an afterdinner beverage, but to me there was just toooo much booze in the booze.

Più che una birra si tratta di un liquore, con i suoi 14%, ha un colore rosso abbastanza intenso, la schiuma ovviamente è minima. L’alcool è preponderante e finisce per coprire un po’ altri sapori, giusto un po’ di frutta e malto. E’ invecchiata in bottiglia (la nostra del 2008). Da bere con calma a fine pasto, per scaldarsi.
