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!!!

Aroma slightly fruity and herbal. Obviously malt heavy but not obviously an old ale. Enjoyable, but like a lot of Sweetwater beers, not great. Shows the abv but was pleasant enough. My namesake beer after running my first 5k after 2 hip surgeries.

Year old bottle pour of deep brown with a small dissipating head. Aroma of huge sweet toffee and toasted barley. Aroma of big sweet caramel malt that packs a rich punch. Very smooth and oily on the tongue with a sweet tangy finish. Overall a very potent rich old style ale and catches up with you.

Bottle from AlexFields, it looks like nasty brown sewage, smells like malt and weird earth dirt. surprisingly it tastes like a barley wine without any hops which I guess is okay if you’re into that sort of thing.

Bottle thanks to AlexFields, thanks! Pours a somewhat light brown with a weak head that leaves zero lacing. Nose is of caramel and booze, slight hops. Reminescent of a barleywine more than an old ale. Taste is sweet but not cloying, with toffee and caramel flavors and a bitter finish. Alcohol is well hidden but still warms you plenty. Body is medium-full, mouthfeel sticky. Not bad but I’ve seen better.
