Floral nose with light citrus and honey. Flavor a little grain, honey, fruit and alcohol. Not too shabby though the price is steep.

total crump! .. . ruby gold .. lots of healthy foam, good lacing .. nuts, spice, bread, and soggy bread .. . kind of boozy, very underwhelming, total crump indeed .. . .
It’s pretty ironic that my grandfather died in his living room.

Keg pour at NH Brewfest. Appearance is orange-golden pour without sparkle, thin white head with nice lacing. Aroma is floral but not strong. Taste is similar to nose but stronger--medium sweet with floral, hides alcohol well. Palate is medium bodied with smooth, slick texture and average carbonation Overall, this is very good with the dominant flavor of sweet versus hop bitterness.

Slight grainy taste of oats. Big honey to bring up the alcohol and an interesting hop mix with a bit of bite.

This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a nice looking fairly dark hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated nicely.
The smell started off with a big honey sweetness. Light sweet lemon plays a nice balance and lends a slight hand to the bitterness department.
The taste was mainly sweet with a moderately bitter underneath grassy to lemon rind-like balance. There was a dry sweet to semi-bitter lemon-like aftertaste running into a quick dry sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sipping quality about it. Carbonation runs fairly light.
Overall, as an American Strong Ale, it works, I’d have again.

Tap. Amber pour with a nice looking white head. Nuts, apricots, dried fruits, citrus, herb, spice, caramel. Medium full body. A lot of many things happening in a good way. Very approachable and hides the alcohol very well. Very nice

Pours clear amber color with a 2-finger white head. Mild aroma of citrus hops, maybe some honey. Body is full, with a moderately oily feel. Light astringency to the finish. Some honey sweetness up front, giving way to some citrus hops. Notes of almond and citrus peel in the finish.

Bottle from The Beer Shoppe in Yakima.
Aroma: Caramel, dried stone fruit (apricot) and orange plus orange zest, yeast, and light cinnamon.
Palate: Soft, rounded mouth feel.
Flavor: Similar to the aroma: Caramel, dried stone fruit (apricot) and orange plus orange zest, yeast, and light cinnamon.
Comment: Smooth, no sharp hop bite. Like a barley wine with it’s hop bitterness and extra malt dialed back. Very approachable in spite of the 9% alcohol. Tasty stuff.
