Never had BoT before. Expected a roast bomb (e.g. Everett) but that was quite restrained. Almost more of a barleywine. Sweet!

I feel like underneath it all is a great base beer...but the weird burnt garlic, mint toothpaste, candle wax aroma / flavor dominates. Ugh.

God tier nose. The taste... crazy intensely spicy, not enough sweetness or richness to balance. Hurts the mouth. Why the hype???

Abnormal Beer Co by Quinquenio

Brian B. is drinking a Quinquenio by Abnormal Beer Co

Huge cinnamon. Solid cocoa. Nice vanilla. Stickiness tempered by a bit of roast and tannin. One of the best non-BA stouts I've ever tasted.

Brasserie Fantôme by Caeymaex

White whale. Doesn't disappoint. Almost indescribable. Old books, overripe grapefruit, orange creamsicle, tart black grape. Amazing.

Lemonheads, grapefruit pith, pine, sulfur, apricot, sesame seeds, black currant? Pretty intense in flavor and acidity.

J. Wakefield Brewing by Label Us Notorious

Brian B. is drinking a Label Us Notorious by J. Wakefield Brewing

Better than It Was All a Dream. More balanced, came off as less sweet to me somehow. Enjoying the Apple Brandy character!
