Batch 9 - Unbelievable. Pours ruby brown with thick legs. Head dissipates fairly quickly but comes back with a negence when swirled. Thick legs is an understatement. Almost like seeing an Yquem stick to a glass. And no one else gets pineapple from this beer? Huge pineapple nose from the bottle and the glass. Lots of pineapple/tropical fruit, dark fruit, dark malts, hops, and rummy. Absolutely stunning beer. I will have another just to check my work. Tasted from the bottle @ 60F.

The Beast is a seducer - accommodating, complicated, powerful, dark and created to last the ages. With a deep burgundy color and aromas of honey, nutmeg, mandarin orange and pineapple, this massive and challenging brew has flavors akin to a beautiful Caribbean rum. Dates, plums, raisins and molasses are dominant in a rich vinous texture. Cellarable for 10+ years.
