@ bar in O-Side Ps &Qs or somethin like that. Very clear orange with foamy head. Very piney citrus and slight pepper nose. Flavour slightly nutty, very malty but not sweet, and crisp hop finish. Much like a double IPA?? But I guess an American (Northwest) Strong GREAT brew.(Didn’t think it was quite 9.2 until I finished a quart...eys its 9.2)

Another bottle 22 bomber thanx to Mel4vegas...so nice sweet malty aroma, super big rich mouthfeel without being too sweet, the hops helped dry it out to a perfect balance, 9.2 holy crap i am going to feel it.

Sharing 22 bomber with Sarapeaches....excellent malt caramel tiny roast aroma, flavor of mellow toffe and Carmel ....really rich and great mouthfeel and carbonation. Not flat like many big brews. Packs in high ABV but doesn’t taste so. Greatness.

Had their Dude so had to try this, 22 oz...totally different than dude, this one leans heavily on malt side in a big way, aroma of caramel toffee and some hops, more noble hop profile it seems, big big huge mouth feel and great carbonation without the pillow head, helps aromas come through. 9.2 big great brew!

There best! Stay away from their light brews and stick with the bigguns. This one is super rich malt nose and tons of fricking flavor. Tap version is killer, been enjoying this for ever.

Bought this 22 oz bomber from a liquor store in the 92008. Had to because their collab braggot was so awesome!!!This was a malt forward brew. Caramel richness and waffle taste. Picked up great spicy hops through the whole experience. Could not tell it was 9%+. Fantastico!!!

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.

Barreras (1079) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 4, 2014
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."
