This is an incredible beer. It is bold and smooth, not overwhelming, and the taste is extremely unique, a standout.

Very balanced strong ale. Good head, excellent lacing. I can taste the birch aging in the beer! High AVB at 10.2 but not overpowering.

Almost a brandy wine light ... But better! Pours surprisingly light in color. Sweet caramel and toffee flavor that is a bit syrupy. This is highlighted by a wonderful smokiness. Bit of alcohol warmth, and just a hair of a boozy edge. I like it! A-

Floral aromas, lots of sticky pudding, toffee, cake. Natural sweetness, candied pear, burnt orange, pleasant alcohol. Balanced, deft, and really long. To my taste, not overly sweet and not slick. Thisis12ptfont (1176) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Complex aroma of wood, spices, raisins and smoke liquor. Reddish copper in appearance with almost no foam. Very interesting funk flavor with notes of sour maple, tangy citrus, plums, slick molasses and cinnamon. Finish leaves a lingering booze, biscuit and hop resin on the palate. Overall, this is an acquired taste.That being said, I find this a wonderful piece of art. Very complex flavors (some of which are difficult to pinpoint.) A nice change of pace. Well done Great Divide, congrats on 19 years of deliciousness. UncleKorm (1315) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at brewery, poured a hazy golden hue w/ a large rocky well retained white head and heavy layered lacing. Heavy aromas of tropical fruits, coconut, mango, apricot, toffee, caramel, peach, and birch. Initial flavor is heavy sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish of moderate duration. Tastes are sweet toffee, caramel, coconut, mango, apricot, peach, resin and birch syrup. Full bodied, syrupy with a thick mouth feel, mildly astringent, and moderate alcohol dryness in the finish, average carbonation. An enjoyable sipper that unfolds as it warms.

22oz bomber pours with a clear deep gold body that supports a white head of foam. The aroma offers up apricot, peach and pineapple hop like fruitiness as well as cedar to oak wood spiciness. Nice balance where the wood is there but doesn’t overwhelm. The taste has rich inviting notes going on like malt sweetened peach and mango and cantaloupe. Those notes are punctuated by spicy oak wood just as the hop bitterness makes it to the surface. Nice tasting stuff. SvanteL (509) - SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2015
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.
