12oz bottle to glass; recíd in trade from umich03jm. Good beer; just not my style. big pine and grapefruit in aroma. very nice caramel/amber pour. Taste is pine/grapefruit with hops at end and lingering - balanced but too much hops for me (and I hate grapefruit); Thanks for the trade, Jason!!

Bottle pour. Just like Spinal Tap would like it - this one does indeed bring the hops with the booze.

Pours a dark murky orange. Notes of caramel and grapefruit. A little past itís prime. Citrus and notes of alcohol. Could easily be mistaken for a barely wine.

Strong scent of grapefruit, strong taste which is slightly disappointing from the good smell, too bitter :-(

Sold on a single bottle allocation at Greenís. Poured a clear amber with a nice white head. Fresh resiny hop aroma, lots of caramel, toasted malt, light citrus and some heat. Flavors were slightly bitter with notes of toasted caramel, resiny hops, citrus and cake. Mouthfeel was medium to full. Actually well balanced for being so big, warming, bitter finish. Long lasting. Not too shabby, like a big hoppy barley wine. I dug it.

Thanks for sharing, bro! Pours a dirty red color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is medicinal, caramel malts, resinous hops. Taste is like a barley wine.....medicinal, chewy caramel and toffee malts.

Bottle from Tim, thanks man! Appearance is reddish brown with a nice amount of head. Aroma is pine, brown sugar, and sweet caramel malts. Taste is brown sugar, pine, with a hoppy bitter sweet finish. Medium mouthfeel, nice carb. Solid strong ale, malty and big but without the alcohol burn.

12 oz bottle, Whole Foods Columbus. Dark red pour; head dissipates into nothing and canít be resurrected. This one needs to breathe for a while before its glory is revealed. Aroma very sweet and vinous, malty, bready, dark fruit, ethanol, citrus, butter. Flavor is deep and malty but not terribly defined; alcohol presence is clear from opening to finish. Mouthfeel medium thickness but somehow full; slightly oily; light stickiness. Nice beer; the alcohol content isnít on the bottle but I suppose I should have ascertained that it was 11%; from the flavor, this isnít terribly surprising.
