A pretty tasty beverage. Pours a hazy orange with sediment. Aromas are fruit and wet dog. Flavors are smooth for the high abv. Fruity and a bit hoppy. Decent.

Taste-ickles. Another "select" ale from Mendocino and a good one at that. Burnt Werther’s colour with an off white head. Big vanilla cookie, biscuit, brown sugar malt snooching up the nose as well as some light warming booze and background citrus. Very enjoyabeer, good price and nice meaty texture considering she ain’t that dark.

Love the texture and rich caramel and hoppy flavor. Smooth taste but it has a mouth feel that gives you something to chew on.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Pretty bland aroma and flavor, alcohol, fruit, sweet malts, bread and toffee. Kind of messy and unenjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
@ Party Town / Florence KY Clear deep amber, bubbly rim head, light head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is molasses and malt. Midway through the palate, hop bitters try to push through, but are only partially successful. The 8% abv isn’t apparent, in fact, this is big in the mouth with no complexity at all. Overall, reasonable, but there are many better options for American Strong Ale.
