In the seemingly endless cruelty, battle, and strife of the Hyborian age, a warrior has but two pleasures: Decimating one’s enemies in battle, and a horn of Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker to slake the thirst of victory.

neepsntatties (1754) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle. Colour...pale Amber with a thin head Nose...funky, cheesy, musky and very dank. Bongwater, from what I hear?? Palate...dry, hoppy and fairly boozy for a pale. There’s peach nectar and nectar of apricot on the mid palate and then the finish trails off very fast.

Revisiting this after years of experience.

Originally, this was my favorite bottled brew from FFF (other than Gumballhead).

Pours a murky ruby-gold with strongly retaining head.

Smells like Alpha King’s big brother; huge densely ripe peach and nectarine paired with a viscous caramel malt, prickling pine lying atop it all. Apple and flowers hide timidly underneath.

Flavor is introduced with pine resin and deep-diving mango, apricot, and peach. An elusive toasted caramel glides hauntingly beneath it all, alluding its massive presence only if you look for it.

Medium-plus body, with a fairly dry peachy, slightly burnt caramel linger on the roof of the mouth.

If you’ve ever have had Alpha King, here is his father. And Behemoth the matriarch. It seems FFF brews have a common lineage of royal righteousness within their recipes.
