What the brewers say

“This beer is the result of lots of fermentables from malt, raisins, and dextrose. There is a very large warming effect from the elevated alcohol levels, which ensures your soul is saved come Judgment Day.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Nice malt sweetness with a hint of burnt caramel. Nice raisin, prune, plum, blueberry, and cherry dark fruit character. Well-balanced esters and malt backbone. Some spiciness adds to the complexity. Slight alcohol note that complements the fruit.”

Flavor: “Lots of caramel almost bordering on burnt caramel. Great malt sweetness with lots of dark fruit tones: cherry, raisin, prune, dates, and plum. Some slight bitterness which keeps it from getting too sweet. The alcohol warmth in the finish helps to round out this beer. Slight peppery phenolics. The beer is big and sits on the tongue and lingers.”

Overall: “A much bolder example than most, with copious dark caramel malts and an equally strong fruity ester profile. Appears tailor-made for extended aging. Definitely worth seeking out for its uniqueness.”
