bottle, brown color with nice tan head, overpowering alcohol taste with some cotton candy thrown in, could not taste any of the spices really due to the upfront alcohol bite

(From old notes, bottle at Pikkulintu on 2008-01-11) Lots of malts. Rahter heavy bodied. The taste has got some hops, too, which balance the maltiness.

750ml bottle during the winter months of 2007-2008. Forgot to rate this, if it wasn’t for the bottle laying around 5 months later i would of never remembered. ah spring cleaning. This strong ale was notably hoppy but still retained a malty nature. Body was on the thicker side. Poured dark brown/orange. Was interesting but not a favorite.

750ml from Newport Pizza and Ale. Poured really deep dark brown. Had a nice citrus/mild hops nose. Flavor was caramel and toffee malts with a lot of carbonation. Mouthfeel was a little wispy but still very good. The high abv was evident but not overpowering, and the finish was good with lingering traces of hops. Not at all bad, thanks for the hook up Johnny boy~
