Drake's The Void (2017)

What the brewers say

“This 17.5 percent ABV brew takes you to infinity and beyond after spending sixteen months in rye whiskey barrels. Multiple additions of Belgian candi sugar shoot this beer on a trip through space, where you’ll be going, too, if you drink enough of it.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Whiskey first, beer second. But the beer is good! Burnt toast, coffee, some chocolate notes. Light smoke and hints of dark cherry and soy sauce.”

Flavor: “Fairly sweet up front. Starts with caramel and dark dried cherries with a lingering roastiness that balances with the strong alcohol character nicely. Finish is warming but not overwhelmingly hot. The whiskey character adds complexity but isn’t overwhelming.”

Overall: “Obviously massively strong, but it’s sneaky overall. Great dark dried fruit (raisins, cherries) paired with chocolate and whiskey. Complex, rich, balanced, dangerous.”
