look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a mini snifter.
Appearance: a dark brown with a tan fingers worth of head that fades to a film and leaves no lacing.
Smells: a sweet plum and caramel malt with little hop notes but a dark fruit like figs are apparent.
Tastes: this is a really malty brew. there is sweet dark fruit flavors and a maple hint that last trough to the aftertaste. There is a little hop character that is floral from what I pick up.
Mouthfeel: there is a super sweet aftertaste, but it balances the 15% quite well. I enjoy the carbonation as I drink it because I though it was going to less than it did from the appearance.
Overall: at 7 bucks this is a flavorful brew with a kick. I think its a dessert beer better suitable for sharing and well worth a try if you see it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
Appearance: Poured like a Quadrupel with some tan-ish head. Dark, again like a Quad, amber red/amber colour.
Smell: Smells of a ridiculous amount of malt. Probably too much actually. No hoppiness in the aroma as it's dominated by sweet, sugary malts.
Taste: Bleh! This tastes of soy sauce and sugar. Again, no hoppiness in flavour but there is some bitterness. This is probably the most intensely malty beer I've tasted. There is a strong, concentrated dark fruit flavour...But it's too much.
Mouthfeel: It's so cloying that I didn't enjoy it whatsoever. I understand that it's a sipper, but why ship it in a 650 mL bottle? That could serve 10 people easily and everyone would be ready to move on to something else. It had strong soy sauce saltiness with crazy plum-concentrate sweetness.
Overall: Not enjoyable. I couldn't drink more than a sip and I've tried some pretty ridiculous beers before. I appreciate the idea of a 15th Anniversary beer brewed with 15 malts, hops and 15% alc/vol...But where do you draw the line? 23% ABV for the 23rd Anniversary brew? Novel idea, but not very well executed in my opinion. To each their own, of course.

I am going to make an oxy-moronical statement- This is hands down the worst beer I have ever tried, yet I recommend everyone to try it. I don't even know where to begin, three days later and I am still having nightmares about it. There was no point at all in adding hops, this is like concentrated malt to the ninth degree. An 8 oz glass has a cup of molasses and brown sugar in it. It's like pure malt extract, pure malt sludge. Sweeter than blackstrap molasses! The most insane beer I have ever tried. The malts made the hops its bitch.... This beer would make even the most die-hard malt-head, freak out completely. It's like a pure malty syrup with an alcohol kick. Ok, try it, and if you live, please post a review here. I was able to consume about 16 oz of a 22 oz bomber. A 22 oz bomber of this could supply the malt for 25 complete full kegs of Budweiser.
