    Pours out extremely cloudy with a slight tan head. The aroma is hard to describe but is very powerful. The mouthfeel is pretty damn thick. The taste is a heavy sweet taste and the malt are very thick in order to try to hide the high abv. This is interesting but don't think. Need to try again. B the way this is much better in the bottle than when I tried it on the tap.

    Thanks to my good friend Lantz for this beer. Now that the thank yous are out of the way, this was not a great beer. Way too sticky and sweet. Boozy to a fault. I understand this is 17% abv, but it was just sticky booze. Not great - needs to sit at LEAST a year.

    Bottle. Copper pour with a medium, foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate covered cherries and booze. Some funkiness as well. Taste is boozy and sweet with sour cherries, chocolate notes, sweet malt, fruit notes and soft ripe fruit notes. Body is medium-full and kind of syrupy with a dense carbonation. Rather sticky and warm as well. Ends with more sour cherry notes, soft chocolate, caramel, sweet malt, booze, cake and fruit notes.
