A sweet caramel aroma. Quite nice. Caramel comes through in all stages of this. A pleasant sweet-hop finish. One of their betters in this 11-sampler!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
"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."

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby hue, plenty of carbonation & lacing. Aroma of caramel, apparent alcohol & hoppy toasted notes. Flavor is sharp with carbonation but has a dry bitterness & tasty sweetness throughout. The tail is smooth, balanced. Moderately hoppy strong ale. Good but not exceptional.

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap with amber pour. Pretty sweet with some fruit and a basic amber taste. Pretty standard amber that hides the alcohol well.
