A. Bottle is at least a 2017, but could be a couple years older than that. It has agave nectar and is aged in bourbon barrels. It smells and tastes of pear, honey, sherry and hints of dried fruit.

Moscato - Pear and a little honey. Too sickly sweet.

This blows dragons milk and KY bourbon ale out of the water. It's smooth and beautiful!

One of the best beers I've ever tasted...seriously. It is sweet but not cloying thanks to the agave nectar, ultra complex thanks to the quad hops, with a breath of mystery thanks to being aged in oak barrels. The Belgian yeast makes it effervescent with tiny bubbles, and the high ABV isn't overwhelming as with other high alcohol beers. Overall, an excellent beer.

30DEC12, Ashlee's house 22oz, pint Big. Belgian-ish. Has a really strong bite. Can really taste the alcohol. Almost like chimays. Clear, golden color. Has a mild spicyness. Medium wet aftertaste with moderate bitterness. High carbonation.

Let it warm to room temperature-totally different beer!
