Enjoyed on tap at Great Divide barrel room in Denver, CO while drinking a bunch of drinky dranks. Appearance is dark brown with a nice slightly off white billowy head. Aroma is mostly sweet caramel, light fruit. Taste is real good, real malty and sweet and the booze content is becoming pretty apparent. Overall good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark chestnut with big, vigourous khaki head. Big nose with candied apricots, caramel, muscovado sugar, honey, roasted cereals and pine cones. A nice balance of malt and hops here. Full bodied palate, on the sweet side but nicely balanced with some heat coming through on the mid palate, leading to a long finish with balanced bitterness. Not as bitter as I had expected from deScriptions, but that might be due to the massive malt body masking it slightly.
