Burial Beer To Streak Blood Across My Brow

What the brewers say

“The chuckling endless insanity of an appetite for utter disaster paves the path to unrelenting purity. Double dry-hopped with Galaxy hops. All day.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Peach leather, strawberries, white peppercorn, pineapple, and orange. A complex ester blend on retronasal of the aforementioned plus a touch of caramel and white sugar.”

Flavor: Interesting sugar profile of caramel and white sugar on top of the crazy tropical-fruit and spice blend. Notes of peach leather and strawberries with a strong pineapple component. Chewy as can be with a bit lower carbonation than the style is known for. The caramel comes out pretty strongly in the finish making it a bit weighty even for the ABV.”

Overall: “Thick and juicy. Full-on pulp. Surprisingly drinkable for an 8% beer—a smooth and well-rounded thinking person’s beer.”
