Sampled at Slutfest 4 - Sexytime! Just not doing it for me. Kinda a mess of chocolate malt and bitter hop and interesting. But just not what I was looking for. Awesome name and label though.

Sweet aroma, bitter taste. Brown pour, thin head. Aroma of toffee, raisin, plum, brown sugar. Taste is the same before piney bitterness comes through as well as a slight peppery heat. Very slight alcohol burn. Medium body..

Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is light caramel and toffee. Flavor is rich caramel and toffee with a nice hit of hops which surprised me for an old ale. Itís a little thinner than some, but I find it quite pleasant. Wife: 3.85

GTAEgeek (1142) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Dark, ruby color, with a small, tan head. Dark chocolate, cherries, heavy cream, peat, and savory spices. Very sweet, with a very faint roasted and hoppy bitterness. The palate is heavy, sticky, and fairly dry. The finish is mildly bitter, with lots of alcohol warming. Overall, this is a strong, malty, and complex beer.

The gimp is making me gimpy. You seriously cannot detect the 10.3 percent and that is a very dangerous, but good thing. Pours a deep mahogany with a slight white ring of head. Deep swarthy malts with scads of toffee. Nice balance with a whack of dark hops in the finish.
