The Ecstasy of Ego Death

Tasting Notes

Beguiling aromas of golden maple syrup, treacle, red apple, and Spanish brandy play alongside vanilla and oak notes on the nose. Viscous and rich on the palate, this beer offers flavors of pumpernickel bread, molasses, allspice, and maple with allspice notes, rye texture, and alcohol spice balancing any cloying qualities. Strong, velvety, and complex.
