COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2012
UPDATED: APR 11, 2013 Pours a dark amber with a dirty head. Looks like it will tast like an amber, but instead a wonderful and powerful hoppiness attacks the palate. Not as much aroma as I would have thought, but nice caramel notes without the attendant burnt malt flavor that usually accompanies caramel malts. Hints of pine and citrus. Full bodied. A great beer. Update, 4/11/13: Just bought another 22oz. bottle, and this is a VERY different beer - not dark amber, but almost as dark as a porter. And strong notes of a toasty malt. Although the bitterness is still there, this bottle of AB is MUCH darker than any other I have had. Must have been a bad batch. I would rate this as a 3.0 overall,

Hazy amber color with tall off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy, some caramel and toffee. Taste is heavy bitter with sweetish notes. Dry finish. I wasnt very excited on this beer at first, but it gets better the more I drink it. Pretty good.

Zaskakujące piwo, aczkolwiek przesadzone w swym ekstremiźmie. Prezentuje się bardzo ładnie, tworzy gęstą, drobnopęcherzykową pianę, a samo ma kolor miedziany. W aromacie sporo nut słodowych kojarzących się herbatnikami. Całość dopełniają subtelne nuty owocowe - głwnie wiśniowe. W smaku jest wytrawnie. Początkowa delikatna słodycz słodowa zostaje gwałtownie przełamana bardzo agresywną żywiczną, ale noszącą znamiona tępości - goryczką. Z tyłu przewijają się delikatne nuty syropowe. Całość jest gęsta, umiarkowanie nasycona i niezbalansowana - aczkolwiek chyba o to chodziło. Mimo że zaskoczyło to ostatecznie ani pali, ani chłodzi.

Słodowy ulepek w smaku i zapachu. Do tego mocno przegazowany i z tępą, zalegającą goryczką. Taki Vip czy inne mocne, tyle że zamiast z biedry to z usej. Czy tam z Niemiec. Raczej ciekawostka.

Grisza77 (729) - Poznań, POLAND - MAY 12, 2017
Miedziane, praktycznie klarowne piwo o obfitej pianie, ktra zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie sporej warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat przyjemny, słodowy, owoce tropikalne. W smaku gęste, lekko słodkie, owocowe, lekko żywiczne. Goryczka wysoka,krtka, szlachetna, żywiczna. Oglnie świetne piwo, treściwe, goryczkowe, fajnie czuć chmiel, a przy tym dość pijalne.

Bobbyns (1) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 11, 2017 does not count
light body, bitter, very bitter, medium sourness, Not too impressed. Slogan is great but the taste or description on the bottle leaves much to answer for. I would place this as an IPA, not the strong american ale. Honestly going wash my mouth out with Bud Light now

Aroma is some caramel, maybe a touch of citrus, almost nonpresent - probably the weakest thing about the beer. Pours reddish mahogany with large off-white head. In taste maltiness including some dark malt & caramel (malt balance reminds me of bocks), with plenty of hoppy citrus and maybe some resin. Relatively high bitterness, though its herbal/seedy/ash-like and feels partially derived from alcohol - a bit unpleasant. Full body with nice mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Gets better (more balanced) as it warms up. Its alright, but I expected far more from all the hype.

Paggio (20) - ITALY - MAY 6, 2017
In lattina. Ambra carico con riglessi mogano e abbondante schiuma crema. Al naso caramello e pane nero. Al palato un buon corpo e soprattutto il motivo per cui nata: lamaro che permane a lungo.
