Broken is a promise...

Deceiving, double-crossing, and treacherous, Betrayal strikes a chord in the deepest shade of red. At first glance, she’s sweet and seductive, yet at the last sharp enough to curl your tongue. The allure of her dazzling caramel sweetness and scintillating aromatic hops is enchanting.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Shocking that this one clocks in at 10.2%! The alcohol is truly invisible. Deep, glowing amber color. Scarlet, garnet, ruby, and burnt tangerine sparkle around its edges. Small eggshell ring and little to no lacing. Not the hoppy and bright citrus Imperial Red I was expecting. Instead, this one is all about caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and honey. Slight candied orange peel bitterness to balance. Pretty solid American Strong! Glad to have these guys back in the market!

Pours deep copper with a thick off white head. Nose is spicy like rye, pine, caramel, candied fruit and some bread. The taste is high sweet and medium high bitter. The texture is soft and creamy at first but fizzy the longer it sits on the pallet. The body is heavy with a long finish. Nice.
