Prepare to walk the plank to an Ale of overwhelming proportions. More hops & more malts than any land lubber can handle. After this experience...your tongue will be buckled. The I.B.U.’s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer! Handcrafted in small batches for those sailing the seas in search of great ales.

On tap at gingerman with Steph. Spicy and herbal aroma. Warm rye, peppercorn flavor, burst of burnt orange flavor in the finish. Respectable, though I’ve never really gained much love for rye ales.

On tap. Nice looking red ale. Very malty on the nose and in the taste initially. Over time I started to feel the bitterness on the palate. Tastes like a malt bomb, finishes like a hop bomb. Very nice beer!

On tap at Good Beer. Amber pour. Very big, sweet, and hoppy. TB is rich and resiny, with plenty of nip and a strong dry, warm, finish. It tastes like an imperial amber/lager. Very good.

Dogbrick (9096) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Sample on Day 2 of the Aces & Ales Strong Beer Festival on 08/13/2011. This brew pours a dark copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and toasted malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character that has grass and citrus notes. Sweet malt undertones. The finish is grassy and resiny hops with a lasting bitterness. Good beer overall.

reggiedunlop (3397) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours distinctly red with a medium tan head...good lacing. Aroma has sweet citrus, vanilla, caramel malt...seems oaked though I don’t think it is. Flavor is very earthy and dry...some earthy fruitiness but not sweet...spicy hops...barleywine-like. Mouthfeel is somewhat oily and finish is very earthy and very dry.

italianjohn (2432) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Pale amber golden pour almost clear ... thin beige head light sticky lacing ... aroma is light bitter caramel malt and spicy bitter hops ..... taste is a bit boozy lots of bitter hops, caramel malts and citrusy bitter hops lightly piney ... has a nice spicy bite in the mouthfeel from start to finish not overly sweet to cover the abv which is hidden half decently

clear amber small white head, nice lacing... malty citrusy aroma, lightly sticky smell... Lively malty sticky sweet body, lotsa hops, finishes dry, full bodied, but not bitter in a tongue buckling fashion because of the sweetness...
