Dark amber color, small white head. Rye malty, alcoholic aroma. Malty, ryeish, alcoholic - American hops are there. Boring, yet another strong American beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2007 Vintage: A: A nice amber color without much head to speak of and hardly any lacing.
S: Extremely malty and sweet caramel, the hoppiness that is usually present in this beer when fresh is almost gone.
T: Lots of malty sweetness, caramel, toffee, and some very slight bitterness.
M: Almost syrupy--very full bodied with low carbonation.
D: Much more drinkable than it’s fresh counterpart, but obviously not something you’re going to have several of.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden bronze, thin head. Chewy, resiny aroma with oatmeal cookie dough. Deep resiny hop palate with that tongue-scraping bitterness that extends past the taste threshold. Rich malts in the finish with alcoholic warmth. I’ve had too many beers like this.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Early 2006 release. Sweet hoppy aroma. Bright orangey color, with bubbles but little head. Starts sweet, continues sweet, then some malty character comes along, and suddenly the hop that was always there actually arrives. Might need some maturity. Too late for this one.
