Mello hop flavor which is surprising from Sweetwater. Smooth maltiness. Noise is is sweet malt with undtones of low alpha hops. Taste is low flavors of caramel and toffee. No boozey flavor yet very strong as I finish this 22. Nice pure white thin head and good lacing. Saving 3 more bottles forthe next years. It will only get better with age.

Perfection. I have been waiting for this brew to come out on pins and needles... And it is awesome! Dark and mild, full bodied and complex. This has everything you could want in a strong ale, you can’t do better, just different. Check out @beerapostle for a full review in the near future. DRINK IT!

mmmm Dank Tank!!!! This one is a hit. Pours a dark brown color with a wonderful forming head and good lacing. Smell the malts at first then the taste is of malt and then a little hop finish. Great balance. Great beer. Thank you sweetwater for another wonderful Dank Tank!!!

22oz bottle bought about a year ago. Pours a dark brown/amber with about 2 fingers of tan head that lasts for a good while. Aroma is caramel malts and some old hops. Taste is very much the same: tons of caramel sweetness and a very mild bitter finish. Becomes much more enjoyable as it warms to about 50 degrees. Thick mouthfeel. Overall, this is a decent old ale for a very reasonable price. Haven’t seen it in stores for over eight months, however.

Transparent dark brown, not much thin head. Brown sugar and umami nose, buttery toffee flavors, strong alcohol.

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.

22oz bomber, courtesy of markwise, pours with a murky deep mahogany looking body that has amber edges and supports a sixty second tan head. The aroma offers up nice musty sweet dark fruity esters, sweet caramel, thick sugary sweet malts and then a decent barleywine booziness near the end of the draw. The taste starts smooth with a sweet soft base of malts and caramel malts that support prunes, cherries and ripe figs. These notes slide toward the finish with an old school mildly harsh straight up booziness that makes me reminisce of the boozy old school 9% barleywines. I love barleywine.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong bready malt, toffee, caramel, and candy sugar. Medium mouth, nutty malt, toffee, caramel, licorice, very sweet, boozy, very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with a ruby red tint. Nice tan almost brown frothy head. Caramel malt and candi sugar flavors. Chewy grain. Toffee. Kind of gritty texture on the finish. Alcohol is well hidden here which makes this entirely too easy to go down.
