fidelis83 (2354) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Pours a darkish orange with a 1 finger, soapy white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, cereal, lots of sweetness, old citrus hops, light herbal and boozy fruit notes. Flavor is dusty sweet citrus up front, light stalk-like planty notes, tree fruit, a little tropical fruit, caramel, burnt sugar, light toffee light bready tea, and herbal notes to the finish. Medium to heavy body with a creamy to syrupy feel, light, sharp carbonation and slightly boozy, dry finish and a little warmth. Pretty tasty overall, pretty typical American Strong Ale, seems a little old, though according to the bottle date of 11.16.2013 it is less than a month old (12.13.2013), maybe some oxidization setting in. Still pretty tasty, like a young, hoppy Barleywine. I wouldnt be surprised to see this improve significantly with a year or two on it... or turn into a syrupy cardboard mess.

On tap at One Eyed Bettys. Hoppy aroma, a good bitterness, and nicely drinkable.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Piney hop, spicey citrus, caramel malt aroma. Obvious strength lingers in background. Pumpkin orange color. Flat bitter, somewhat over sweet. Not too wheaty that I could tell. Heavy gut punch. Sort of one of those imperial ambers you see here and there. Thankful to chase dinner with it tonight.

Bottle, 22oz. A lightly unclear one, dark golden in color and with a dense, off-white head. Rather piney aroma, with some mint hints and a malty touch. Very hoppy actually. That goes for the flavor too, lots of bitterness and some alcohol. Pine cones, some mint and fluor and quite a lot of sweetness. Full-bodied and warming, with a soft carbonation. Long finish with bitterness and sweetness, and quite a lot of hoppy flavors. Quite nice, but too intense I think. 131122
