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.

Bottle 750 ml. Dark amber with a rocky head. Tiny bubbles. Aroma is resin with a small touch of citrus and caramel. Taste is caramel, malty, herbs. Not too bitter, well balance. Good, better than the oak age version.

Deep chestnut brown with amber tinges. Aroma is grapefruit, fig, and pine. Taste is dominated by American Cascade hops. A little bit of sweet malt, and then pure IBUís. Extra long dry finish, but also straight forward. I am a certified hop head, and this is a good beer, but it lacks that lively hop complexity that I love in IPAís and strong ales from the Pacific Northwest. The hops just kind of hit your palate, hang out for a minute, then leave. They donít dance on your tongue like Stone IPA. Oh yeah, let this one warm up to at least 50 - 55 degrees, it really opens up when it is a little warmer.

Dark pour with off white head. Aroma of malts, hops and wood. Taste is quite hoppy up front with roasted malts and a nutty taste in the background. A little overrated I think but still a good beer.

GTAEgeek (1063) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2011
On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Pours dark brown with a medium, rocky, off-white head and thorough lacing. The aroma is caramel, roasted malts, and earthy and resin hops. The flavor is strong sweetness and bitterness throughout, with neither outweighing the other. The palate is very heavy, chewy and sticky. The aftertaste is strong and bitter, and will not go away. Overall, this is a heavy, strong, and incredibly flavorful beer. If you are looking for something delicate and subtle, youíve picked the wrong beer.

Appearance is a small brown head with deep amber. Aroma is a sweet yet alcohol malt. Taste is surprisingly hoppy with some sweet caramel. Overall a good blend.

improvjock (317) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Tap. Pours a reddish brown with tan head (at least in the dim bar lighting). Aroma of sweet malts, licorice, candied fruit, and citrus hops. Flavor has plenty of hop bitterness and has a clean finish. Not bad.

This ruined my palate! Such a strong beer! Had to try it at least once, now I canít taste any other beer! Good for a person who can handle a really heavy beer!

Pours nicely dark brown. Initial hint of spiced malt gives way to hops just a touch brighter than I prefer. Hilarious text on bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
