Hits you like a short of a length delivery into the gap between thigh guard and pad. Right in the fleshy part of the thigh. Smack bang in the chops. Fruit all over the palate, with the hops not far behind. Definitely not a session beer but an experience.

Man this beer could almost melt steel beams. Big bitter, resinous pine. Not as crushingly roasty as I Hoped but that's just me. Deep and intensely rich, somehow very minimal booziness but definitely feels hefty. Shame there's no heavier version!!!?!?!!Earned the For the Can (Level 89) badge! Earned the I Believe in IPA!
