"probably their most popular beer A) because it’s a malt bomb, so macro beer drinkers that are afraid of hops will love it, and B) it’s 8 freakin percent, so frat boys looking to get drunk quicker like it. That being said, even though I love my hops, this is a pretty stinkin good beer. Unbalanced, yes, but the flavor, mouthfeel, and aroma or all carmely, malty good! the best of their regular rotation."

Comes out of the tap a clear mahogany with a pale tan head. Malty aroma has hints of cloves and hops. Strong malty flavor has notes of cloves and horehound and a subtle hoppy undertone plus something of an alcohol nip. Thin but smooth body has light fizz.

Taste: similar citrus, roasted malts as in the aroma, bready
A clean well made beer, a simple style, but this was crafted well.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Tap] Pours a bright copper color with a thin white head. Some caramel in the nose, with hints of alcohol and mild citrus. The taste is of caramel malts, sweet fruits and a Belgian-like sweetness to it. A bit cloying overall. One dimensional flavor profile lacks much of a hop balance. Not one of their best beers, in my opinion.

Draft @ Silver Peak. Pours clear amber in color with a small off white head that leaves sporadic lacing. The aroma is mild caramel, pale malts with a moderate hops. The flavor opened with mild sweetness. Caramel dipped bread, mild to moderate hop bitterness, somewhat dry. Decent.

Amber with creamy white head and lace. Light caramel malt and EK hops. Medium semi sweet caramel malt, abv, and very light hops. Slightly thin and over carbonated for me. A good beer but just off a tick.
