Nemesis Belgian Quintupel

The theoretical companion star to our sun though to cause mass extinction events. It is hypothesized that Nemesis periodically blows through our solar system smashing everything in its wake....

Much like Nemesis, this Belgian Quintupel is both theoretically exists and will smash anyone in its wake!

This is a HUGE beer (13.6% ABV) that actuallytastes more like a braggot due to the orange blossom honey. It is extremely easy to drink and dangerous!
