3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Beautiful looking beer poured dark amber, clear with a huge foamy off white head, tons of lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel malts and hops with some citrus notes. Taste is nice bitter hoppy, some malts and some fruit; you can taste the alcohol but is not overpowering is actually well balanced and drinkable which is hard to believe given the high ABV. Very Nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Amber-like body, with a nice everlasting light brown head. Nice hoppy aroma. Exceptional bittersweet and alcoholic flavour, that is downgraded because of a persistant heavy-bitter aftertaste. Almost full-bodied, average carbonation, oily and smooth texture. Would be a favourite, if it wasn’t for that extremely bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Hazy gold with frothy white head. Lots of citrus and pine resin hop aroma. This is balanced with some raisin and caramel sweetness, substantial alcohol presence on the back end, some bitterness on the finish... I can see why it did well in Beer madness last year...

Has that usual smell like most Flying Dogs. Dry, dry, dry beer. Not a big fan of anything Flying Dog makes, so I’m not a fair reviewer of the product.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong alcohol nose. Some citrus fighting to get out but mostly caramel sweet alcohol aroma. Taste is big treacle sweetness but body is medium. Slight bitterness on finish. Too sweet and unbalanced and feel this is too strong in abv which is mismanaged.

Pours a nice amber color with a medium white head. Oily texture and average carbonation. Aromas are caramel, raisins and pine. Huge bitter finish. Bitter/alcoholic side of the beer seems to overwhelm other aromas.
