Bomber to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells malty and hoppy (in that order) with a notable Belgian yeast presence. Tastes like it smells with an average (albeit syrupy) mouthfeel. Malt bomb.

Poured an inch of foamy head on a hazy, copper colored body. The aroma was a mixture of citrus and barnyard, pretty good though. The taste is moderately bitter with a mild sweetness and a mild bitter finish. The texture was soft with moderate carbonation. Easy drinking for the high ABV and tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at the House of 1000 beers this beer poured a dark caramel color with a small foamy orange-white head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was faint sugar and golden fruits. The flavor was dryish, tangy and boozy with notes of table sugar, candied pear, apricot, pepper and a yeasty and astringent undertone. Turns dry towards the long finish of table sugar, booze, pear and pepper. Moderately full bodied. Decent.
