COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale brewed with Curacao peel.

Sometimes a lot isnt nearly enough. For the times when a lot plus a bit more is called for we proffer the 110K+OT series. This 5th iteration is a 25 OF, 5 FG, 11% abv, 5 SRm sort of brew. If you dont know what all that jargon means the gist of this is; its more than you deserve. A lot more. And a little more than that too

750 bottle from PUBR. Pours turbid deep orangy /fall foliage oak leaf color with 1-finger frothy well-retained off-white head. Seriously, if you scored this one lower than a 3 for appearance, then I question your rating acumen, as it looks pretty as a picture. The nose is intense, very barleywiney, with huge caramel malt, hops, fermented dark fruit, mango, cognac, and berries. Tastes super rich, with a heavy caramel malt base, syrupy, with hints of cognac, a less sweet Irish Mist, huge tropical fruit including tangerine, pineapple, mango, and star fruit, and finishing cognac and spirity notes. Stays a bit sweet, with a huge palate heft and complexity. Oh, and dont forget the hops. Theres more hops in this than you peons deserve, and a little more than that, too. I expect this one to age well for 20 years, and this would pair extremely well with a CAO maduro cigar as an after-meal smoke to a prelude dinner of roasted bartlett pear salad, black pepper-crusted lamb chop, and au gratin potatoes.

Not sure what these d-bags who have also rated this are talking about. This is a fantastic brew. If you dont categorize it into anything and just take if for what it is it is a fabulous experiment. If you made beer on a commercial scale youd understand and this for being 11% is sex in a can. Big orange, more malty but incredibly, absolutely incredibly smooth for 11%. So suck my balls all ye who think its only an 81. Suck em.

Thats Adam for the trade, I loved this beer. After returning home from RBWG2013, it was a nice last bottle in the fridge to wait out the winter. Crisp and warm in the taste, beautiful in the pour and texture.

dougefreezy (45) - Bradenton, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Pours a deep orange amber. KInd of sweet and syrupy but citrusy at the same time, that balances well. Seems I got a fresh one! I guess Raul the Quality control guy was not passed out when they bottled this batch! No volcano of beer here! Overall very satisfying, a big thumbs up! Thanks Cigar City!

Apple cider colored with big, foamy off-white head / Hoppy nose of pine, caramel, citrus / Full body, sweet and malty, chewy, with big, lightly biting hops, with good, sweet but bitter, slightly hot, finish / Big, rich flavors of fresh caramel, cut pine, orange, and grapefruit / A big malty monster, more on the triple ipa side.

750mL bottle courtesy of markwise pours clear deep copper with tan head. The aroma offers up sticky malts mixing with near robust levels of pine hop goodness and a modest level of sweet smelling fruity esters. Nice IIPA aroma. The taste is bold and rich and bitter. I get prune and cherry sweet fruity esters as well as firm levels of muted yet resiny pine hops. Between those notes sweet malts and pine hop flavor bind the experience together. Nice bold rich bitter IIPA and homered in class too.

(Tap at CCB) One of my favorite offerings from CCB. Hazy orange pour with white head. Aroma and taste are of citrus orange/grapefruit and some pine. High ABV is well hidden. Strong touch of sweetness that really made this beer stand out.
