On tap at the SD Strong Ale Fest 09. Brown cola color pour, off-white head. Dark sweet malts, caramel, fruit, and slightly earthy. It’s alright, nothing much stands out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Pizza Port Strong Ale Fest 2009. Since I’ve been to the brewery on Maui I figured I’d have to give this a shot. Pours a deep cola brown with a small beige ring. Nose starts of intriguing with pineapple and other tree fruits giving way to toasted malts and some toffee. Finish is quite boozy and sweet.
