2005 release originally reviewed 07-23-2005: three years to the day - Muddled dark candy bar brown with a slight glow about the edges. Awesome cap of yellowed creamyness sits about an inch high and seats itself there for quite a long time. Once its quaffed a bit, it tends to keep a very thick, firm, and whipped creamy topping. Lacing in hole-lined sheeting.

Aroma of dark floral cherrys, crisp peeled willow bark, and some caramel. Very light noting of chocolate cookie dough.

Inticing taster. A flavor ride of a treat with a big malt base of dark caramel, darker toffee, and mild molasses sliced with dark cherry liquids, dates, and figs. Malty and slightly creamified doughy center with lovely wild yeast drying effects creating a fresh bark backing and green leafy floral-like spice. Dustings of chocolate float around and mingle with delicate, alluring coatings over the dark fruityness and caramel.

Feel works quite well with the flavors, fairly full and rich with a bold and fluffy carbonation wrapped in a mild dryness and subtlety. Malt loaded creamyness ensues within and behind each sip making for one easy quaffable quad. Damn good stuff! The 9.8% doesn't seem to show up anywhere but in the last areas of the 750 once you've finished your first glass and into the second.

A euphoric philosophic thanks in the dualisms or abstractions contrived of existentialism and transcendentalism goes to warriorsoul for this experience in hedonism.
