This high alcohol drink has lots of dark roasted malts and high levels of hopping to balance. Think of it as the barley wine of stouts. As in most beers that are this big some aging is recommended to let the flavor merge. The extract version could be slightly sweeter. Who could tell with the intensity of this full bodied full flavored beer?
