Bottle, shared with Michael. Pours black, with a small, fleeting, tan head. Peat, oak, and vanilla aromas up front, with some milk chocolate, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Sweet and syrupy, with a mild, sticky bitterness. Heavy body, with a dusty, hard mouthfeel. This is a big and boozy beer, with a lot of depth. DSG (15519) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 21, 2017
