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.

Deep brown body with a thick tan head that leaves considerable lacing. Malty sweet aroma with notes of caramel, brown sugar, and a hint of hops. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Very engaging flavor and ever-changing. Throughout, the caramel and brown sugar sweetness is there. Then there’s hints of dark fruit, burnt sugar, and finally pine and bitter grapefruit at the end. I hope I’m good enough for this beer because I like it.

Amber, light copper (EBC 16-18), light opalescent with a fine poring beige head and good lacings. Aromas of orange marmelade, dried fruits like figs and notes of toffee, caramel, herbs and some wood-honey and pine develop. Soft carbonation, smooth, full bodied. Toffee caramel sweetness building a nice harmonic herbal, grassy, pine bitterness. Lasting bit sweet yet dry finish.

Bomber from the LCBO. Pours a muddy brown with a thin off-white head. Aromas have some hoppiness to them, but you quickly get malts, caramel, some gingerbread cookies, a bit of red fruits. Fairly creamy mouthfeel. On the palate I’m getting a melange of grapefruit, spices, slightly sweet malty biscuits, toasty roastiness, with a rye bread twinge on the swallow and after taste. A pretty darned complex and balanced ale. Worth seeking out.

Well I liked it despite label. Hoppy aroma dark orange to red color. Taste malty and bitter hoppy. Pretty high in alcohol so not too many for me.

On tap at The Archive for Armakeggon. I know what all the hype is about, great full flavoured beer.

Very mild smell but cold beer, very cool red color though...very slightly sweet at first, hoppier right after and it lingers....bold flavor...little more bitter than I like

Never forgot this one. Think I first had a few (ended messily) about 12 years ago. Revisited now with more focus on taste. Big and bold hoppy bitterness. It lingers. Rich and sweet malt. This is a big, strong ale. Yes there are subtle notes too - fruit and nuts, caramel.

Tariczny (73) - Katowice, POLAND - AUG 21, 2015
Very nice dark amber-ruby color. Clear with very nice head. Aroma: hops, resin, roasty tones and a bit of basement and raisins. Taste: at first resiny hops, but then hazelnuts, raisins and hondy. Semi sweet, soft carbonated and medium bodied. After a while I can feel some strange tones like: wet towel, and cloves. Nice beer, balanced.

Bottle to glass. Pours a medium brown deep amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is boozy, molasses, dark fruits. Flavor is toasty, caramel. Solid.
