Deep amber pour with a nice one finger head. Strong malt aroma other than that not much there. but the flavor is an ass kicker! Strong malt, raison, figs and a touch of sweetness and hops! Almost has an DIPA character to it. The alcohol is there but it still drinkable. I like this alot!

Amber orange, large white creamy head that leaves a thick lacing. Overpoweringly malty aroma, though the hops do come through nicely. Some notes of caramel. Nice thick bitter taste with lots of citrus hops and amazingly enough, some lovely necter sweetness. The body is initially very smooth and slick with a nice heavy feel. A good alcohol burn kicks in towards the end.

Cloudy dark copper pour with an off-white creamy/sticky head. Nice lacing. Floral and citrus aroma with a little melon sweetness to it. Starts off with spicy floral hops which leads to a caramel sweet finish. Medium-full body with a little carbonation. Could go for a drier finish on this one but definitely a good beer overall. Alcohol is well hidden.

Had this at the Beer Cellar, Cincinnati, OH. 11% of delicious alcohol. Copper in color with a medium white head. Hopps flavored. I wonder who designs their bottles?

Tap @ The Collins Pub. Clear orange-brown pour with an off-white head leaving moderate lace. Floral nose, heavy body. Fruit, brandy and whiskey, syrupy without being overly sweet. Full mouth feel, hint of oiliness. The high ABV is obvious.

Not much aroma at all, very surprised. Great hop flavor followed by a huge hit of malty sweetness, very well balanced, medium mouth feel, great beer except for lack of aroma.

Big sweet malts, and big bitter hops. Not much fruitiness from the hops, this leans more towards barley wine territory. Sweet, powerful, boozy. Really nice.

Lots of peach and apricot, followed by some lemon rind and a slight earthyness. It finish of bitter and very boozy.
