4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 This beer mega-macadoscious rocks!!!
The aroma is of rich malt, dark fruits and chocolate.
A crystal clear, deep mohogany color. Handsome.
God, I'm a geek. I just called a beer handsome... and it's not the first time.
The flavor is to die for. Malty and slightly sweet up front. Well-balanced with a whisper of tartness and bitterness on the backside.
Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Medium-length, slightly acidic, mostly dry finish. Incredible beer! English Strong Ale? Ehhh!!! I'm not the categorizing expert that those who run the site and brew the beer are, but this brew reminded me of a Belgian Dubbel. Whatever. Drink one.

Tasted on tap at the brewery in Boulder. Dark red/orange appearance with a light head. Sweet alcoholic aroma. Pretty intense English Strong Ale flavor at first. Somewhat malty body that’s slick in mouthfeel like an Old Ale or a Barleywine. Definitely alcoholic flavor.
