Bottle poured amber. The nose was sweet malt. The taste was sweet malt, carmel, orange, and a hint of funk.

Brown color. Reminds me a monkey beer I once had. A friend told me that it was nothing like that beer but then he retracted his observation after noting the sweet taste and high alcohol content. I win! And so does this beer.

Bomber from Beachbum25. Pours translucent dark copper with a transient slight beige head. Interesting strong malt aroma. Imperial Alt is a possibility. Med body or slightly better - but it thins rapidly. Seems quite toffee - but with enough hop to stand that off. Heat is barely perceptible. Finish is pretty dry, almost dusty. Except malt keeps coming back. With time there’s suggestions of darkish fruit - more fig than raisin. Imperial Alt works for me. I’ve had several, and this one certainly isn’t at the bottom of the group. One for sipping with a good book.

Sampled at Lithy’s Tennessee/Ole Miss tasting. Despite not getting very good reception at the gathering, I enjoyed it. Like a euro strong lager, but with some raisin and candi sugar belgian dubbel notes. Big alcohol, but not burning. Pretty good brew in my opinion.

A good beer for what I was looking for at the time. It isn’t my favorite ale of all time, but it was crisp and refreshing. This is the type of ale I would drink with a decently heavy meal (steak or something) as it wasn’t overly malty.

Bottle picked up at SL.... Pours a coppery red color, small head that faded quickly. Aroma some sweet sugary notes. Taste is a sweet honey, malty, little bready...not bad. Just a little too sweet for my liking. Medium texture, smooth easy to drink. Would of never guessed it to be 11 percent.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2010
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of malt, diacetyl, slight Earth, and slight caramel. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, loose, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, thanks to the carbonation. Slightly hazy. Very sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malt, Earth, nuts, leafs, and hints of marzipan and cocoa. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, Earth, nut, and leaf finish. 11%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

My first sampling from this brewer. Not bad. Looks good. Sweet sugary aroma. The flavor was sweet up front with a nice hop bitterness. There was a peppery feel to it. Fairly smooth.
