Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe coffee. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy as hell.

22 oz bomber, props and thanks to JCW!!!! Lightly hazy deep amber w/a lasting light bege medium sized head. Rich, malty, and caramelly aroma. Some light citrusy hops behind the malty facade! A bit of toasty malt to go along with the caramel. Also a bit bready and has hints of alcohol. Also a bit piney! Its well balanced with a caramelly and toasty flavor up front, but finishes semi sweet with a bit of lingering bitterness. Some light alcohol in the flavor mid palate; The citrusy hop flavor is not strong as this ones mostly about the malty sweet flavor, but it keeps the sweetness from getting out of hand. Medium body, smooth at first, but becomes dry in the mouth after swallowing, possibly a bit due to alcohol which is a bit warming. About 2% alc. away from being a barleywine. It has a lot of the flavors of a BW, but not quite the alcohol content. Very good!

Big thanks to Foolish_Mortal for this one. Pours a dark amber ,clear with a head of creamy tan bubbles. Nose is killer of hops,I mean Jeffrey Dahmer killer. There is some underlying maltiness but shit with all those hops,who cares??? Well,the flavor is much less intense hop-wise and more complex with some grains and caramel tones hoppn in the backseat.

Pours a dark brown/amber with a big creamy off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, citrus and pine. Flavor is caramel, toffee and loads of spicy, citrusy hops, some hints of dark fruits. Texture is creamy and chewy.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Aroma is strongly hoppy, full, a touch of malts. Pours with a giant, awesome, thick as foam head that is difficult to pierce with the lips (well, almost). Flavor is also very hoppy though carries malts well, with a touch of chocolate and yeast. Well balanced though still packs a nice punch.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2005
This was a total surprise. Figured it would be a, err...I dunno, some type of strong hoppy thing that Id not like so well. Instead, I found a variety of malts, a rich toffee-like conglomeration that included tobacco, maple syrup, lots of caramel, biscuit, some small herbal qualities, peatiness, and a finishing hoppiness that manages to be clean and leave the aftertaste of those sweet, luscious, red bean curd cookies that the Japanese love. Drizzled in butterscotch. Like a ball of orange juice wrapped in a pillow in zero-G, the mouthfeel was round, soft, and sugary. Head abundant and color a cloudy yet shimmering Martian red.

Bottle. This is an absolutely terrific beer to look at. Beautiful ruby red/amber coloring with a tan head that lasted forever and left lacing all the way down the glass. Both the hops and malts come through in the aroma. Very nice. The flavor is mostly of caramel malts, but the hops once again come through. A very enjoyable brew to drink and to look at.

GABF 05. Pours a deep brown with a floral and hoppy aroma. Flavor picks up where the aroma leaves off. Good stuff.

HogTownHarry (6379) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2005
Bottle (650ml). Poured deep clear ruby brown (if this were a single malt, Id marry it) with a massive light brown foamy rocky head that leaves a thick sticky lacing. This ones very hoppy (yes, typical full-spectrum Bear Republic hop-hit), but theres more resin/woodiness and sweet roasty malt - and yeast - than Im used to, also reminds me a bit of Belhavens "petrol" nose and taste. The taste on this one is wonderfully balanced - this *is* hoppy, but there are many other elements - spruce resin, mild roast malt, a hint of caramel, lots of leaf and moss character that comes out more as it warms. Mouthfeel is quite encompassing, somewhat flat, but complex. One of my favorite BRs to date.
