Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours murky orange copper with a tiny beige head and a fruity melon aroma. There is a slightly fruity toffee flavor with a lots of heat and a dry finish. Pretty oaky too. Quite complex.

Large bottle from Guerde! - thanks for the Surly! Pours orange gold with a slight white head. Aroma shifts - honey, then melon, then ... Full bodied. burns in the gullet but not so much in the mouth. Its a little tallboyish in flavor, but a lot better than macro malt liquor! Not much hop. Finishes a lot less than dry. Interesting.

750ml orange waxed bottle via trade. I wish this was so much more but alas it is what it is. Poured a rather dull cloudy orange body with a small frothy mostly white head that leaves minimal lace on my Sammy tulip. Aroma is all sweetness, honey, tropical fruits, flowers, honey topped bread, orange marmalade and pineapple, off shoot bubble gum notes. Palate is a fuller thinness to an almost medium body with softer carbonation that finishes harsh probably from the nondetectable ridicuously high ABV. Flavor is similar to the aroma, pineapple juice, citrus notes, mangos, sugar, alcohol, toast, marmalade that has spoiled. The body is slightly syrupy especially for the carbonation and the ABV is still a well hidden secret. Overall its sort of a booze bomb that is super sweet. Not Surlys best, which may be my last......lets both hope not.

nimbleprop (6091) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 1, 2013
750ml bottle pours a hazy orange amber with some clumpy, white head. Nose is weird, oddly sweet, honeysuckle, malt, orange, raw wood, some white corn whiskey. Flavor is like white corn whiskey, malt, some tropical fruit, pressure treated pine. Full, hot finish. Tastes like barrel aged Olde English.

_angst_ (3648) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours golden with a goldenish white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is sweet with bread, cookies, alcohol, tropical fruits and hints of solvent. Taste is sweet, bitter and fruity with bread, caramel, wood, crackers, alcohol, pine needles, resin and tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is round, tart and medium bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and bitter with bread, alcohol, dried fruits, wood and caramel.

Body is medium+, texture is syrupy, carbonation is soft. Finishes dry, bitter and very mouth-drying alcoholic. Too messy and too much.
