COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

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

Malt and tin on the nose, a little appealing but not too exciting. Has a great dark brown-velvet body with nice beige head. Flavour a good strong ale taste with hints of licorice and molasses. The alcohol is quite prominent and the finish is oily. Itís a good strong ale, simple and drinkable.

Physically tough day at work. What can I say, I needed something with an edge. Nuff said.

Pours ruby red with a creamy head. Biscuity, malty aroma. Very strong malty backbone. If youíre after a malt beer youíve made the right choice.

I wasnít ready for this. You donít drink this beer. It drinks you...I guess. Pours a smooth amber color with an off white head. Upon first taste I had to kneel down and submit to its will. This beer is like going to bed with a malty goddess and letting her play with your poop area.

Alright, all the macho shit aside, this is a really good beer. Fuck all the not worthy shit, just drink this beer and donít be a little bitch. Itís a really big beer that does command respect. Thereís a lot going on here. Lots of sweetness, vanilla, bourbon, fucking woodiness just epic aromas. This beer is not balanced and does not try to be. Iíve heard a lot of people who try to talk this beer down and say itís overrated and whatever, but Itís null and void. If you want to venture down this road and try this behemoth of a beer, do it, but be prepared for massive amounts of self guilt, and unworthiness ;)

W aromacie lekko karmelowy, słodowy. Barwa jasno miedziana, niska ale bardzo trwała piana, świetny lacing. W smaku spora goryczka, duża podbudowa słodowa. Bardzo gładkie, bardzo aksamitne, delikatnie za bardzo nagazowane.

650ml enjoyed @ my vacation apartment. Pours clear dark amber with a one finger off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, earthy, wood, caramel, pine and hoppy. Flavour is medium sweet and surprisingly bitter. Full bodied, thick texture, average carbonation. Finish is resinous and malty.

Malt and smoke smell with a bit of wood in the back, hint of coffee and bitterness. Red/orange with a bit of amber. Amber color. A bit of sweetness but it is mostly bitter. Needs a bit more sweetness.

Bottle. Beautiful appearance of dark amber colour with white foam. Aromas of caramel, malts, hops, hint of wood. Taste: rich and complex, caramel, vanilla, lots of hops, citrus fruits. Great balance. Medium carbonation. A beast of a beer!
