Poured at GABF 2014...my husband and I were voluntary pourers. This brew was a wonderful malty beer. Very smooth and even for the posted 9.2% This one will get you in trouble, good thing for the one ounce pours. Nice hop bitterness, and malty dry finish.

Pours a dark amber color with a malt and alcohol aroma. Tatse is of caramel and sweet malt. Good alcohol flavor throughout the beer especially as it warmed. A little black licorice flavor mixed well with the sweet flavor. A nice beer that warmed the chest as it went down.

Big big beer in the 22 oz bomber....cool cap!!! Crystal clear garnet color, Huge malt aroma, and hops to back up big rich caramel and toffe notes. Very minimal alcohol notes suprising since labeled 9+%. Greta brew and pretty good price at 6.99 for the big brew.

"A pretty nice beer, but it kinda lacks focus, not fitting any style and coming off good, but muddled. The oaked treatments of this were quite nice, this base beer was above average with light citrus notes, ample bitterness and malty sweetness to balance. Hides the abv well."

22 oz bomber from liquor store in Encinitas. No this a true to style ASA. It does have a nice hop aroma more to the earthy side but the malt dominates. The flavor is caramel and biscuit with very very alcohol warmth. Finishes malty then dry.

Pours dark garnet amber crystal clear. Great caramel aroma with a slight hop earthyness. Not citrus more pepper hop flavor and aroma. Flavor leans more towards the caramel and malts. Big, big brew. Loved it ...

On tap at brewery, visiting my brother this is his fav place. Blonde no good but this one the American Syrong was excellent. Not much aroma but the flavor was incredible. Rich thick malty. Never had a beer quite like this. Thumbs up!

Tasted on draft. Hazy golden color with a cream colored head with decent lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and alcohol. Full-bodied with a front end hop flavor and fruit flavor. Very enjoyable with the pizza that I had it with.
