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.

Scent of malt, toffee, and yeast. Clear ruby colour. Bitter front with notes of nuts, roasted malt, toffee, and hops. Quite strong, but equally tasty.

Nice, classic, American strong ale with a strong hop presence. Dark brown pour from bomber, malty front, hoppy finish.

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.

ElCapitan22 (231) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Pours a very nice reddish auburn color with decent lacing. Smells slightly sweet and malty, kind of like maple. Tastes very malty and sweet. A good beer from stone, but nothing too special here.

voyageurmike (132) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2015
From a bottle. Pours dark copper with trace of white head and light carbonation. Faint malty aroma, with an initial malt sweetness followed on by piney hops bite. Bitter lingering finish.

There was quite a bit of smoke with this beer. The beer poured a red amber with a thick khaki head that left a lot of lacing. The aroma is strong hops, slight sweet caramel, grass, and citrus. The taste is very bitter as imagined. It has a grassy, almost chewy texture to it. I also pick up some slight alcohol. I also pick up an oak aftertaste.

Bomber, mahogany pour with creamy lasting light tan head, decent lacing, sweet malt, some dried fruit\prune, roasted, some wood, some bitterness at the end as well as some pronounced yeast, more resin than citrus not as overly aggressive as advertised

martinrumsam (562) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Draft. Deep coppery red with thin off white head aroma of malt and dark sugar sharp hop bitterness hit followed by sweeter dark dried fruit richness with bitterness returning Served too cold for my liking.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 Bottle from Haskells. Consumed in Moeder Lambic glass. Forgot how dark this one pours. Copper/amber. Minimal head. Aroma has some sweet elements but pine/citrus/hops come on strong. Gives way to a blast of hops that grabs you by the taste buds and never lets go. Basically a hop filled ride with resiny aftertaste. It definitely owns its hop commitment. Mouthfeel is cloying. You don’t want to drink this before other beers. It doesn’t play well in the sandbox.
