Overall: As you can tell, I got some dark fruit up front on this years vintage. It’s just as big as it’s always been,although it seems the booziness is jiving well with the rest of the beer and seems better integrated than before. While super delicious, it’s still a monster and still hits me between the eyes like no other beer. I recommend everyone try this if they have not, it’s quite an experience.
