From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Whisky aroma. Dark coloured a little hazy in appearance very strong in alcohol and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a woody and extremely bitter malt finish.

W. T. F. They called this an ESB, but I donít know how thatís at all within the realm of possibility. This bruiser pours very dark brown, almost black, with a medium-sized tan head. The aroma is rather roasty with insane amounts of licorice and intense booze. An ESB, really? The flavor is almost like Sam Adams Triple Bock - I canít think of anything else to compare it to. Alcohol and licorice dominate the flavor, and itís hard to get much else from this besides that. Maybe molasses and roast. Full-bodied, syrupy, and boozy with average carbonation. This is really a beer that defies style and ratings. I donít know what to make of it other than that itís not very drinkable.
