10 oz. into a tulip at Capital Ale House in Fredericksburg, VA. From notes.
A: Pours a dark golden color. There’s about a finger of white-colored head that’s bubbly in texture. Head duration is solid, and lacing left behind is plentiful.
S: A rather sweet brew, as expected. I don’t pick up much oak aging, but I do pick up plenty of sweet caramel, treacle, citrusy hops, and maybe a touch of dark fruit. It’s not as hoppy as I anticipated.
T: It starts off with a prominent treacle flavor. This transitions into a faint bite of citrusy hops and booze drying out the aftertaste somewhat. Really damn good, if slightly lacking in complexity.
M: The feel is both thick and creamy, while the drying bite on the back end doesn’t strike me as being remotely harsh. It’s quite drinkable for something so big. Carbonation pokes through the full body quite well.
O: This exceeded my expectations slightly. Even if it’s not the deepest, it’s drinkable and more pleasant than its gravity would suggest. I enjoyed killing this, but I don’t think it would have been this good straight from the bottle.

Orangegul, disig med medelstort skum. Fruktig doft med citrus, aprikos och ananas, aningen tallbarr och trä. Smaken lite kärvt träig från björken men här finns en stor fruktighet av citrus och aprikos plus en lite eldighet av alkoholen, fruktsötman balanseras av träsmaken och en påtaglig beska. gnoff (10891) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2015

(Bottle) Pale orange colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with apricots, citrus, fresh wood, pineapple, toast and a whiff of alcohol. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, apricots, fresh birch wood, vanilla, toast, pineapple, grapefruit and a generous citric bitterness in a finish with a certain alcohol glow. Almost full body, sweet. Soft and rounded malt character, but the wood and alcohol gets a bit dominant after a while. Quite nice. Enwiebe (318) - - MAR 14, 2015
3/14/15. Bomber bottled May, 2013. Mild citrus and pine nose. Birch is definitely the primary flavor. Alcohol is not dominating and has rounded out a bit. Nice strong ale but nothing special.
