3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from Shahin Thanks ! Pours a rich copper color perfectly still. The nose is big complex sweet toffee, deep ripe plum, caramel a and a bit of boozy vinous notes. The palate is smooth and mouth-coating like a fine sherry. Lots of complexities in the palate with flavors unfolding as the palate adjusts to the boozy heat and layered notes of belgian spices, caramel, date. doughy sourness... touches of rye.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Red waxed 750ml generously cracked by fishingnet (thanks Ben, you ROCK!) at the Angry Chair brewery stop of the rbwg2015 bus tour. It pours out with a sludge delivering a clear copper liquid that has almost no head and tosses up thick tree stump legginess. The aroma offers up big sugars, molasses, burnt honey and nectar sweet smelling. The taste is intense with thick sugars, molasses, black strap molasses and roasty toasty honey sweetness. Wow. This is crazy, big, bold, smooth slick and yummy. What a great sipper.

750 ml bottle shared at Angry Chair Brewing.
Pours like syrup
No head but then 25 % ABV. This is partially hidden and it drinks like only, say 14%.
Very thick: one of the fullest bodies I can remember.
O: wow ... just wow.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted during RBWG15. Clear amber color. Thin off white ring of head. Loose bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light slick texture. Great potent aroma.. Mild caramel, some Belgian yeast, light spiciness. Moderate plus sweet taste, kind of drying in the finish. Moderate bitter. Some mild by the finish, nothing bothersome though especially for alcohol. Very fun stuff to try.
