On tap at KLCC microbrew festival, kind of forgot about this one til I found my notes. Reddish brown pour with a one inch bisque head. Earth and pine in the aroma, some light caramel. Slighty sweet note in the flavor to compliment pine hops and floral hop bitterness. Solid brew.

On tap at Baileys. Dark copper pour with a tall off-white head. Big piney hop nose, sort of herbal kick to it. Caramel sweetness, slight diacetyl buttery taste. Still a bit of excess alcohol giving a little bite to it. Finish has a big hop bitterness.

Draft at horse brass pub. This big, strong, bitter beer is suprisingly smooth despite it’s abv. Very drinkable. Dangerous.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured a reddish/ruby with an off-white head. Leafy and earthy aroma with some malts and a little bit of floral hops. A definitive American strong ale. Light carbonation and tasted like a supped up ESB. Candy sweet malts came into play with more of the floral hop bitterness towards the finish.
