COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Bottle pour. Dark hazy amber. Light bready aroma with lots of hops. Strong bitter hop taste with a long aftertaste. Well made beer, but not my type. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a deep clear amber reddish color with white head. Floral notes, some caramel malt, a little spice on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some malt.

Fresh 12 oz. bottle. Pour is a nice deep transparent amber with a sticky lacy off-white head. Aroma is a sweet caramel earthy malt with maybe some dark fruit. Big hop character, pine and citrus. Taste is similar, big flavorful bready sweet malt with piny bitterness with grapefruit and sweet citrus in the finish. Really good one.

A: strong malt characteristic with the his coming through as a resin finish. Smells of alcohol A: pours clear caramel color with off white head. Big and frothy with a lot of lacing T: well balanced. A lot of buttering hops. Little hop flavor. A big beer but drinkable. M: medium carbonation. Finishes almost creamy. O: this is the beer that got me into craft beer so I will always be partial. Strong malt characteristic and a big beer but well made ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Dan's. The pour is a deep ruby/brown pour, lightly opaque with a small head of medium khaki that leaves some great lacing. The aroma is strongly malty with a subtle underlying hop to it. Very good and very deep. A nice caramel and earthiness hides a bitterness that's just lying in wait. The taste is definitely sweet and malty up front but then this arrogant bastard just blasts you with a great bitter hoppiness. Lightly floral, strongly bitter, and nicely malty on the back end. The mouth feel is light, but had great carbonation backing it up with a lingering, very dry, bitter, malty aftertaste. I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer. Nice head retention and color. Good aroma, malt, caramel, some chocolate. Excellent taste, sweet in the beginning and bitter finish.

Great beer! Well worth a try. Great aroma and flavor and the high alcohol content helps too :)

hohops (277) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Appearance- very dark ruby, pretty opaque, one finger off-white head which is thick and foamy. Aroma- caramel and toffee, malts, hoppy, yeast, sugary fruit, bread. Taste- loads of hop bitterness and a firm malt backbone. Toffee, sugary raisin, hop resins, boozy fruitcake. Cherry and hints of marzipan come through as it warms. Mouthfeel is sticky and a bit oily. Bitterness clings to the mouth and tongue and lasts forever. Impressive.
