Bottle from SB. Very nice aroma and taste. Very complex taste, kind of a mix between IP, tripel and barley wine. Good!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz pour from chilled bottle into tulip glass. Orange, translucent, moderate carbonation, big fluffy cloudy white head. Nose is grainy, sweet, cereal, bready, biscuit, fruity, orange, maybe even a little spicy. Fuller bodied, creamy, smooth, a little hops stickiness on the end. I can definitely see the oats. A more complex body than most beers, but it works. Taste is sweet, biscuity, bready, a little fruity, mango, orange, a little rye spice on the end, a hint of alcohol. Really interesting and really good, though distinctly on the sweet side.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Slightly hazy golden amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of caramel, hops, pine, tropical fruits and malts. Taste of sweet malts, peach, apricot, grapefruit, pine, caramel and syrupy hops. Full bodied, lower carbonation, slightly creamy mouthfeel and a hoppy finish to smooth out the sweetness. A little cloying in the middle but good beer nonetheless.

Nice peach and mango aroma with some cereal sweet malts, pine needles, and caramel. Taste is very much like the aroma: grapefruit and pine, tropical fruits, with some sort of spice and caramel in the finish.

Keg at the Hanging Bat.
Surprised at how old school this seemed to be. Light clear sparkling russet brown with a good hop nose and supple mealiness of the body.Smooth yet stealthily big and round

Wow, didn’t expect this to be so damn good for some reason. Poured into a goblet. Beautiful, amber/orange color with a decent amount of carbonation. Smell right out of the bottle was very...fruity? Literally had no idea what to expect out of this beer, and what a pleasant surprise it was. Head is super thin, pale color, dissipated almost completely within minutes. Taste is just plain awesome, fruity, clean, no hint of the high ABV to me, and .. spicy and bready at the end. Niiiice.
