In June of 2019 SN released this last collaboration with Dogfish Head. It has maple and birch syrups. Very smooth for a 10.2% beer. Lighter body than I remember from other Life and Limbs and kind of bland. A C to B-.

A-. Very balanced strong Ale, a bit sweet with raisins, maple or molasses. Smooth. In 8-4-2018 had the 2019, 2011 and 2009 back to back and the clear winner was the 2009. Thick, malty sweet, smooth, caramel, toffee and some alcohol. A rated. B for the 2011 and C for 2019.

Lots of chocolate, caramel. The sweetness offsets the bitterness very well. You get a sense of the syrup in the sweetness, but it's not overloading in taste. Well balanced.

Absolutely fantastic! I had it on tap but I'll certainly be looking to see if they bottle this one. Dark and sweet. Great beer. Found it in a bottle: Life and Limb 2. 10.2% ABV and just as awesome as the draft version I described above.

Pours a thick dark brown. Good head retention. Sweet flavors of maple syrup, raisins and alcohol
