on tap at barrio with the trains going by. i had to get something!!!
pours a very dark garnet brown with an off white head and lots of lacing trails. aroma of raisins, molasses, chocolate, lots of florals/esters, malt and coffee (when it warms). the flavor is awfully similar with a touch of earthy hoppy dryness and pleasant bitterness on the finish which keep in balanced quite well. it has a nutty coffee-like aftertaste... mmm. lots of alcohol vapors noticed as it warms ( i do have four beers in front of me. damn trains!). medium bodied but rather light mouth feel given the alcohol content of this thing...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ AZ Strong Beer Festival. Burnt orange body with a razor thin white head. Citrus, brown sugar, caramel, and spice. Pretty faint aroma...the alcohol is hidden well. Not a bad AZ beer, but not mind-blowing.
