It was surprisingly easy to drink for this ABV. Pleasant aroma of ripe apricots , malt , grapefruit and only hint of alcohol. Sweet , malty taste with moderate bitterness at the end. Warming alcohol in aftertaste. Fortunately, brewers managed to balance sweetness, which is overwhelming in many strong beers.

$12.99 for a single 12 oz bottle from W&M Mansfield. Poured into a snifter. I let it warm up for a while. A deep medium amber color with a thin light tan head. Big boozy and sweet aromas. Flavor is big and sweet with a thick mouthfeel. Decent hop balance. Earthy and muddled. Not overly bitter with all that sweetness though.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 bottle to snifter, Aroma is citrus- mostly grapefruit, some malts and a little booze, taste is hops, caramal, and almost seems charred. Very warm on the finish, and very boozy even though the abs is still well hidden... good, a sipper for sure

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark golden orange pour with a filmy layer of beige foam. Aroma is a blend of pine resin, ripe citrus, alcohol and brown sugar. Taste is caramel malt, orange liqueur and resiny hops bitterness w/ notes of grapefruit rind and candied tropical fruit toward the end. Mouthfeel is naturally sticky and syrupy with soft carbonation and a final shot of dark sugars and citrus booze in the finish. Much like World Wide Stout or Olde School Barley Wine, it’s a palate wrecker that drinks more like a liqueur than a beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2015 version. Pours a dark copper orange with a nice white head the retains and leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma of malts, alcohol, pine, citrus, fig, dark fruit. Taste is strong and boozy! Alcohol and malts up front with a lot of hop resin backing it, mostly pine with citrus on the backend with caramel, toast, and biscuits. Big alcohol burn going down. Big, full body. Creamy, thick texture. High carbonation. Bitter, long finish. Overall a good sipper. Would be great for aging and I’m certain a lot more flavorful after several years in storage.
