Postmortem Brew Review
Dark amber color.
Sweet smelling and actually reminds me of spiced ham aroma.
One-half finger, tan color head. Leaves very little lacing.
Slightly sweet and hoppy. Hops roll through each sip.
Lightly carbonated.
Medium mouth feel. Alcohol taste is masked by hops.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Founders has created a 112 IBU, 12% ABV beer, appropriately named Devil Dancer. There's a potent tango. If you're dancing with the devil, you know it's a calculated risk. I, The Reaper have some experience with this. Now, if only they had a "Drinking With The Stars" show. Muahaha.

Think about it for a minute. 112 IBU's are intensely strong for a hops base. They come from 10 different alpha (acid) hops varieties. That's lots of science. Then pack the 12% alcohol by volume wallop on top of that - - - if you can't do the science by now, at least you can probably do the math. Boom goes the dynamite! First in your mouth, then in your head.

I think the most interesting thing experienced, was how my olfactory senses picked up a scent of ham. It's likely a wrong pick on my part, but whoomp, there it is. It certainly didn't taste like that in any way.

Promenade over and try one, if you dare.
