This is one amazing beer. I got the 101.4 fl oz bottle. That’s right, 3 Quarts and 5.4 oz.
Look - Has a great cloudy amber color to it with a beautiful amber/tanish cream.
Smell - Fruity, Alcohol smell def. Amazing, like heaven.
Taste - Has an extra bitter taste def.Has a big alcohol taste but fruity and sweet also. Amazing. That’s all I can say. lopisar (255) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2013
Dark golden color with light foam. Not very distinct aroma. Very bitter and long aftertaste. mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - JAN 13, 2005
This a big beer, but damn good. The aroma is incredibly strong with a battle between citrusy and piney hops. The flavour is actually about as balanced asa beer this big could be. It starts off with some sticky sweet caramel maltiness and then a huge hop crunch with orangey/pine flavours. The mouthfeel is wonderfully resiny and oily. I wish I had more than 1 bottle.

OK...so I popped the cap on a bomber and got hit with some serious fruit, alcohol, and floral notes. Very strong aroma from the bottle. Nice off-white head, cloudy redish brown beer. To-be-honest, it really didnt’ taste like an 11+% ale, at least not in the beginning. As it warmed up, I started to taste more ABV, hints of wood, hops, and citrus. Very tasty, but it seems a bit over-rated IMO. Nonetheless, a very nice strong ale. tasted @ 55F.

Poured a deep red with very strong flavor and aroma. This one had a very boozy flavor that you could tell it was a double with 11% alcohol. Although it was a great beer a little too boozy for me. Had bomber from beverage world. BierFiend (253) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pours red amber with small off white head. Smells of malts, hops, and yeast. Tastes of malts, bitter, and alcohol. Finishes clean with medium carbonation. Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Pours a clear ruby red color with a medium white head that shrinks to a small ring around the glass. Aroma is sweet malt, spice, orange and alcohol. flavor follows suit with heavy sweetness and a bit of nutty flavor.. The orange and alcohol finish it up nicely. Medium to thick mouthfeel..

wow. This one is loaded with complex flavor. Lots of enjoyable sweet flavors of pine, fig and molsassas-like notes. This is like a winter ale and should be sipped to be thoroughly enjoyed.
