Typical viscous looking, mid-orange appearance with no head or lacing.
Alcohol and some bananas & (of all things) coconut in the aroma.
Taste is pretty powerful. Alcohol, hop bitterness and a dry feeling combine in a not all that subtle a manner. The coconut comes back in the finish too. Very odd. Also very obvious burning on the way down.
This is a big, big beer and it’s really not all that drinkable in my eyes, but many will enjoy it. Alcohol is not well hidden (not that I suppose that is something the brewer cares about) and it has an edge.
A sipper in every sense of the word.
