Pretty good. Rich malts shine through but there are hops sewn into this one. Well balanced and clean but heavy. Malty strong with a hint of alco esters. Nice body and legs and the yeast is awesome how it leaves spice and a hint of warmth but doesnt ruin the palate or stay too long. good stuff

From the Can, and graciously shared by a friend last winter. Sweet and malty and tasty, a little bit of dark fruity flavors as well. Thoroughly enjoyable beer.

Poured a dark amber brown. Can at obx. Love the can label. Aroma is dominated by caramel malt. Medium light sweetness. Medium body at least. Huge malt forward notes. Carbonation on the softer side. Not bad.

12oz can. Pours a clear dark copper color with a sticky tan head. Little carbonation. Aroma has dates, fig, prune and caramel. Taste is sweet with dates and some light bitterness. Thinner bodied and somewhat sticky. No idea that this is 8.5% abv. Pretty tasty.

Can. Malty aroma, a little sweet and dry. Copper, clear, light head. Sweet taste that really brings out the dates. Different taste but good as it’s not overdone.

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.

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.
