Not one of my favorites as Iím not drawn in by the overly hoppy. Surprised its a 99. Solid ale though.

Bottled on 09/11/15. Aroma malty, fruity. Taste bread crust, caramel, strong grapefruity bitterness. Balance is on the bitter side, maybe too old already?

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a deep, deep red-amber with a high, mixed-grained, light tan, blown-insulation head. Nose is subdued because of the overly aggressive head, but has caramel, spice, wheat toast, and dark fruit notes. It starts out caramel sweet, then kicks in with a burnt sugar and licorice bitterness that counters the sweetness nicely. The carbonation is low, so thereís a definite syrupy element to this beer. However...this is nowhere near as badass as it pretends to be. Itís a big, heavy, bittersweet beer, yes, but itís not out of the ordinary. In this case, the arrogance may be a bit misplaced. Tasty, though.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep amber with sticky head. Aroma is bready malt, very earthy, with notes of treacle, piney hops, and spice. Taste is bitter upfront, fading to a more balanced toffee, caramel and grassy middle before returning to the bitter hops. Contrary to a couple of other reviews, I found this to be significantly better as it warmed. Not bad, but probably wouldn't buy again.
