3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
nearly clear copper pour with a 1 finger, oily yellow cake head. Aroma is loaded with caramel and toffee, with some nice, pine, citrus and spicy hops and a little toast and biscuit. Flavor is again full of caramel and toffee, some nice toasty notes, light roast nuts, lots of sweet pine, some grapefruit and spicy hops coming in toward the finish along with some interesting berry- like fruity esters and a nice, lingering earthy, toasty grain note that really sells it as a proper autumn seasonal beer. Medium body, slightly syrupy entry, off dry finish, lingering dryness, medium, sharp and lively carbonation. Really pretty fantastic stuff very well put together, but maybe a bit too boozy and astringent.

650ml bottle from Binny’s in Highland Park. Pours reddish orange with a tan-orange head leaving some spotty lacing. Aroma hits immediately with citrus and pine, then stone fruits and caramel kick in. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, tangy pine, some grapefruit, some stone fruits and chewy resin. Medium bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes tangy fruity and piney, with a nice sweet blend, and some length. Much more a stereotypical "American Strong" ale than an amber. Sure seems that the same was said in February for My Bloody Valentine - are they different recipes? Both are quite good. 14.5
