George has spent a fair amount of time looking around and planning a sticke alt.

This was the result, but we had a bit of surprise. When we originally talked about this brew there was some debate about the overall strength. Should this be a Falconized brew, big, obnoxious and powerful? We finally decided to be more subtle, but the brewing gods laughed and made it so that we came out with a more powerful sticke beer than intended. Funny how it works, no?
