A 4-pack from the 21:st Amendment.
Long lasting thick beige head. Deep dark red color.
Marvelous hop and fruit aroma.
Smooth malty taste with both some fruit and a small chocolate taste. There is a medium bitterness and medium to big body that makes this an almost perfect Strong ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a murky dark copper color with a decent head that lingers. Aroma is faint and hoppy. Smells like citrus and flowers. Taste is mostly bitter throughout and ends slightly tart and fruity. Flowery hops come through too. A slight alcohol burn on the finish is nice. Overall, a nice collection of flavors that blend well together. Definitely recommend trying this.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Pours an almost clear mahogany color with a finger of frothy off white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some nutty and bready aromas, some grapefruits hops, brown sugar, and a touch of dark fruits.
T - Starts off with some rich sweet caramel malts with some grapefruit hops and bitterness with a touch of brown sugar. Through the middle, some pine hops come through with a bit more bitterness with some bready malts and some dark fruits. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel and bready malts with some tropical hops, bitterness, nuttiness, dark fruit, and a bit of booze.
M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet, warming, and lightly bitter finish.
D - Very drinkable. Really nice malt forward, but still fairly hoppy strong ale. I really like the balance on this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can. A reddish brown body topped by a short lived light beige head. A few blobs of lace were left. On the nose is sweet malt, dates, roast that all come together. Flavor is a fair amount of nuttiness, bready, and nice subdued pine. Needed a touch more sweetness to round out the flavor. Fairly dry finish with roasted nuts. Medium body with mild carbonation. Good stuff.

Bottle: The aroma consists of fruit/dates, caramel, spice, and faint pine. It pours a mostly transparent dark amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with caramel, toffee, and faint dates. It finishes with mild oranges and citrus hops. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.
